    Final Report of the International Ad Hoc Committee
    by Anonymous on Friday August 12 2005, @07:08AM (#15850)
    Final Report of the
    International Ad Hoc Committee:
    Recommendations for
    Administration and Management of gTLDs

    10 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
    The IAHC's efforts have greatly benefited from extensive on-line discussion, both within the committee and on public discussion lists. Also, the Committee's open request for proposals and comments resulted in numerous submissions from which some concepts and details in the IAHC's proposal were adapted. The current recommendations are the result of integrating the discussions and proposals, seeking a fair and practical balance.

    The IAHC plan includes establishment of a non-regulatory policy framework
    in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which both the public and private sector will be invited to sign. The framework is enabled by the required signatories of the gTLD DNS Memorandum of Understanding (gTLD-MoU): IANA and ISOC. The gTLD-MoU will provide a mechanism for additional signatories to advise on future policy evolution of the global Internet domain name system. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), has agreed, in principle, to act as the depository for the gTLD-MoU and to publish the list of signatories.

        * The IAHC has defined an additional set of seven (7) gTLDs. Any additional
    gTLDs will be defined under the aegis and policy coordination of the gTLD-MoU. The newly-defined gTLDs are:

    .firm
    .store
    .web
    .arts
    .rec
    .info
    . nom
    for businesses, or firms
    for businesses offering goods to purchase
    for entities emphasizing activities related to the WWW
        * gTLD administration and management will comprise multiple competing registrars, globally dispersed, under a Council of Registrars (CORE) established by a
    Memorandum of Understanding (CORE-MoU) which is signed by the registrars. CORE will operate as a Swiss non-profit association.

        * Stewardship of the gTLD space is assigned to the gTLD DNS Policy Oversight Committee (POC) comprising members named by the Internet Society (ISOC), Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), Internet Architecture Board (IAB), International Telecommunications Union (ITU), International Trademark Association (INTA), World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and CORE.

        * A gTLD DNS Policy Advisory Body (PAB) is formed from gTLD-signatories, to
    obtain public and private sector consultation and review of POC and CORE activities.

        * A gTLD DNS Policy Advisory Body (PAB) is formed from gTLD-signatories, to
    obtain public and private sector consultation and review of POC and CORE activities.

        * Changes to policy can be initiated by POC and enabled upon the agreement of ISOC and IANA, with the review of PAB and CORE.

        * CORE will be responsible for providing common services among the registrars, in particular operating a shared data base repository for the gTLD registries.
