Competition, Consumer Trust, and Consumer Choice Review(CCT Review)
A periodic review required by the ICANN Bylaws to examine the extent to which the New Generic Top-Level Domain Program (New gTLD Program) has promoted competition, consumer trust, and consumer choice. Besides assessing the overall effectiveness of the program’s application and evaluation process, this review also evaluates the safeguards that are in place to mitigate issues that arise.
Section 4.6 in the ICANN Bylaws provides details about performing a CCT Review. Reports from past reviews are available on the ICANN website, along with progress updates for any CCT Reviews that are underway.Related Terms
