ICANN announced today that it has signed an accountability framework with the country code top level domain (ccTLD) managers for .ly – Libya.
The Accountability Framework program provides two mechanisms by which ccTLD managers can formalise their relationship with ICANN. The first is an Accountability Framework document that sets out the obligations of a ccTLD manager and ICANN. It also covers dispute resolution and termination and is designed for ccTLD managers requiring a formal document with ICANN.
The second mechanism is an exchange of letters between ICANN and the ccTLD manager designed for those for whom a simple statement of commitment is more appropriate.
Signed accountability framework and exchange of letters documents can be found at http://www.icann.org/cctlds/agreements.html
