The Working Group shall consider the following questions as outlined in the Final Issue Report and make recommendations to the GNSO Council:

IRTP Dispute Policy Enhancements

a) Whether reporting requirements for registries and dispute providers should be developed, in order to make precedent and trend information available to the community and allow reference to past cases in dispute submissions;

b) Whether additional provisions should be included in the TDRP (Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy) on how to handle disputes when multiple transfers have occurred;

c) Whether dispute options for registrants should be developed and implemented as part of the policy (registrants currently depend on registrars to initiate a dispute on their behalf);

d) Whether requirements or best practices should be put into place for registrars to make information on transfer dispute resolution options available to registrants;

Penalties for IRTP Violations

e) Whether existing penalties for policy violations are sufficient or if additional provisions/penalties for specific violations should be added into the policy;

Need for FOAs

f) Whether the universal adoption and implementation of EPP AuthInfo codes has eliminated the need of FOAs.


The Working Group shall follow the rules outlined in the GNSO Working Group Guidelines:
