ICANN's 61st International Meeting in San Juan, 12 - 15 March 2018
The Contractual Compliance team attended the ICANN61 Community Forum in San Juan, Puerto Rico from 12 - 15 March 2018.
On Wednesday, the team provided a Contractual Compliance Program Update [PDF, 14 MB] to the community with a focus on the latest work to enhance transparency in reporting. The team walked through the enhanced Monthly Dashboard, explaining the new details on the subject matter of complaints, and continued with the new quarterly and annual reports. In addition, the team addressed questions from the attendees. The team held a Registrar Outreach [PDF, 27 MB] session to provide an update on compliance related matters and addressed a list of questions and issues that were brought forward by the Registrar Stakeholder Group compliance sub-group team. The Registry Outreach [PDF, 10 MB] session did not take place due to a schedule conflict.
As in every ICANN meeting, the team attends the Generic Name Supporting Organization(GNSO) sessions, the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) sessions, the board meetings with stakeholders, and the different working group and review team sessions. The team also held meetings throughout the week with different ICANN community members, including contracted parties based on request.
The information is also available at the San Juan ICANN meeting schedule.
Germany Outreach - 21 February 2018
Contractual Compliance completed an outreach visit in Munich, Germany, in partnership with the Global Domains Division and Global Stakeholder Engagement teams. The event, called "Get Engaged with ICANN- Seminar for Registrars," was organized in conjunction with Domain Pulse 2018. Fourteen ICANN accredited registrars were onsite and six participated remotely. It was an opportunity for the registrars to collaborate with ICANN on the compliance process, responses to notices, and ask questions. Topics presented include Registrar Data Escrow, WHOIS Accuracy Program Specification (WAPS), Transfer Policy, ICANN Registrar Audit Program, Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy and annual certification. The registrars provided positive feedback overall. Per survey results, 80% of the participants were most satisfied with the compliance session and requested for more sessions dedicated to compliance and operational topics in the future.
