Public Comment

Public Comment is a vital part of our multistakeholder model. It provides a mechanism for stakeholders to have their opinions and recommendations formally and publicly documented. It is an opportunity for the ICANN community to effect change and improve policies and operations.

Public Interest Commitments/Registry Voluntary Commitments

The ICANN Board directed the ICANN organization to initiate a consultation on Public Interest Commitments/Registry Voluntary Commitments (PICs/RVCs) related to the next round of the New gTLD Program. The consultation process has three components: 1) review of, and feedback on, a proposed implementation framework; 2) a webinar to provide an overview of the proposed framework and an opportunity for initial questions; and 3) a session on PICs/RVCs during ICANN79 in March 2024.
