ICANN-Accredited Registrars Formally Approve ICANN Registrar Fees for 2002-2003
Twenty-eight accredited registrars, responsible for over 75% of registrar fees, have expressly approved the registrar contributions to ICANN for Fiscal Year 2002-2003 that are set forth in the Fiscal Year 2002–2003 Budget that was adopted by the ICANN Board at its 28 June 2002 meeting in Bucharest. This level of registrar support satisfies the requirement in ICANN's Registrar Accreditation Agreement that ICANN's variable fees from registrars must be expressly approved by enough registrars to account for two-thirds of all the registrar fees to be paid.
ICANN's Fiscal Year 2002-2003 Budget was developed in consultation with the Budget Advisory Group – including three members from the Registrars Constituency. As in years past, ICANN Accredited Registrars will contribute to ICANN's budget through both yearly fixed accreditation fees and quarterly variable accreditation fees. The yearly fees have been set at US$4,000 for the first top-level domain for which a registrar is accredited, plus US$500 for each additional top-level domain. The variable fees are described in the budget document.
