- Interim Registration Data Policy for gTLDs Policy published on 17 May 2019
- Interim Policy Effective Date: 20 May 2019
On 4 March 2019, the GNSO Council adopted the Expedited Policy Development Process (EPDP) on gTLD Registration Data Team's Phase 1 Final Report. Following a Public Comment period, the ICANN Board passed a resolution on 15 May 2019 to authorize the implementation of 27 of the 29 recommendations contained within the Report. Of the two recommendations not adopted in full, the Board identified portions of the recommendations that require further consultation with the GNSO (see the ICANN Board's scorecard for the EPDP's Phase 1 recommendations here).
ICANN org implemented the Interim Registration Data Policy for gTLDs pursuant to the Board's 15 May 2019 resolution. The interim policy maintains requirements from the Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data, which detailed how registries and registrars must handle gTLD registration data as a result of privacy legislation, and which expired on 20 May 2019. The implementation is currently engaged in analysis of the recommendations to produce an implementation plan to be published for public comment.
