Public Comment is a vital part of our multistakeholder model. It provides a mechanism for stakeholders to have their opinions and recommendations formally and publicly documented. It is an opportunity for the ICANN community to effect change and improve policies and operations.
The Registrar Stakeholder Group (RrSG) welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback regarding the Universal Acceptance Roadmap for Domain Name Registry and Registrar Systems. The RrSG would like to thank ICANN org staff and third-party consultants for their considerable work involved in preparing and testing this universal acceptance (UA) roadmap.
The RrSG reviewed the UA roadmap (including testing appendices), and does not have any significant issues with the roadmap. It is the understanding of the RrSG that the UA roadmap does not place obligations on any contracted parties, but serves the purposes of raising awareness of UA and to assist contracted parties with becoming UA ready and will not result in eventual contractual obligations. The RrSG welcomes the opportunity to continue discussions regarding UA at upcoming ICANN forums, including the Contracted Parties Summit in November 2022.
