APAC Space Web Conference - Discussion on New gTLD Subsequent Procedures Policy Development Process (PDP)
Date/Time: 16 June 2016, 03:00-04:00 UTC

Please note that the ICANN56 Helsinki meeting (27-30 June 2016) format is focused on SO/AC/SG/C (Supporting Organizations/Advisory Committees/Stakeholder Groups/Constituencies), and there will not be a face-to-face APAC Space meeting in Helsinki. 

New gTLD Subsequent Procedures PDP 

On 17 December 2015, the GNSO (Generic Names Supporting Organization) initiated a PDP to consider and analyze issues discussed in the Final Issue Report on New gTLD Subsequent Procedures to determine whether changes or adjustments to the existing policy recommendations in the Final Report on the Introduction of New Generic Top-Level Domains are needed. As the Working Group for this PDP has begun discussions, it is beneficial for the APAC Community to understand the relevant discussion topics and thus be better poised for participation in the near future.
