LOS ANGELES – 6 June 2018 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announces changes to the Public Comment on Short-term Options for the timeline of ICANN reviews. ICANN has removed the Registration Directory Service Review (RDS-WHOIS2) options and references and posted an updated Short-term Public Comment at the request of the Review Team. Any comments regarding the RDS-WHOIS2 request should be addressed to the RDS-WHOIS2 Review Team at firstname.lastname@example.org (publicly archived).
The Public Comment periods on both the modified Short-term Options and Long-term Options remain open and we encourage all stakeholders to contribute.
The Public Comment on Short-term Options to adjust the Timeline for Specific Reviews will close on 6 July 2018.
The Public Comment period on Long-term Options to Adjust the Timeline of Reviews will close on 20 July 2018.
