ICANN Staff is seeking comments on the Preliminary Issue Report on the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy Part C [PDF, 572 KB]. Specifically, this Report addresses:
This Public Comment solicitation represents an opportunity for the ICANN community to provide its views on the issues outlined above and on whether a Policy Development Process should be initiated. Further data and supporting information on issues b) and c) are especially welcomed as these issues were originally raised in 2005. This Preliminary Issue Report will be updated to reflect community feedback submitted through this forum. A Final Issue Report will then be presented to the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council for its consideration.
|Section II: Background
The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) is an existing community consensus policy that was implemented in late 2004 and is now being reviewed by the GNSO. The IRTP aims to provide a straightforward procedure for domain name holders to transfer their names from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another should they wish to do so. The policy also provides standardized requirements for registrar handling of such transfer requests from domain name holders. The IRTP Part C is the third in a series of five Policy Development Processes (PDPs) that address areas for improvements in the existing Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy. The GNSO Council requested an Issue Report on IRTP Part C at its meeting on 22 June 2011 (see http://gnso.icann.org/resolutions/#201106).
