Purpose: The purpose of this public comment proceeding is to obtain community input on proposed changes to the charter of the GNSO Registrar Stakeholder Group (RrSG). The changes have been approved by the membership of the RrSG and are awaiting ICANN Board review and approval. Due to the extent of the revisions and consistent with the ICANN Board Process for Amending GNSO Stakeholder Group and Constituency Charters, the ICANN Board Organizational Effectiveness Committee has authorized this public comment proceeding.
Current Status: Charter changes have been approved by the membership of the RrSG. As part of its Phase II process responsibilities, ICANN staff conducted a review of the document, with policy staff further examining the language, form and structure of the document and the legal team making an assessment of any potential fiscal or liability concerns in the proposed changes. As part of the Phase II process, ICANN Org provided input back to the RrSG of potential fiscal or liability concerns. While most issues were addressed, ICANN Org identified that there are some potential fiscal or liability concerns that persist, and those were flagged to the ICANN Board Organizational Effectiveness Committee in preparation for the opening of the public comment proceeding.Next Steps: Pending community feedback, the ICANN Board will review the proposed changes to the RrSG charter.
