Message from Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi, GAC Chair, to Paul Twomey
Dr. Paul Twomey
President and CEO
Dear Paul Twomey,
Subject: Notification of Contemplated Action on Proposed Policies: Inter-Registrar Transfers
I refer to the message from Louis Touton of 30 March 2003 requesting GAC Advice as to the recommendations of the GNSO Task Force on Inter-Registrar Transfers of Names. Thank you for referring this question to the GAC.
This matter has now been considered by GAC and our Advice to the ICANN Board is to support and implement the GNSO Task Force's recommendations, without amendment.
These recommendations are a step forward in improving services provided
to users, on which all the constituencies concerned agree. GAC Members
value especially the monitoring and review processes provided for in the
recommendations, so the policy and/or the dispute resolution procedure
can be improved or amended in the light of experience.
Please also note that the ITU takes no position, either for or against, with regard to the GNSO recommendations on name transfers.
Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi
