LOS ANGELES – 7 September 2018 – On 17 September 2018, the Registration Directory Service (RDS)-WHOIS2 Review Team will host two webinars on its Draft Report.
The Draft Report [PDF] was posted for public comment on 4 September 2018.
During the webinar, members of the RDS-WHOIS2 Review Team will provide a briefing on the Draft Report, which contains draft findings and recommendations pertaining to the gTLD registry directory service. Participants will have the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions directly to the review team.
The Registration Directory Service Review Team assesses the extent to which prior Directory Service Review recommendations have been implemented and implementation has resulted in the intended effect. The review team also assesses the effectiveness of the then current gTLD registry directory service and whether its implementation meets the legitimate needs of law enforcement, promotes consumer trust and safeguards registrant data. Informed by ICANN organization briefings and available documentation, the review team has formulated twenty-three draft recommendations based on a factual analysis.
The Registration Directory Service Review is one of the four Specific Reviews anchored in Article 4.6 of the ICANN Bylaws. Specific reviews are conducted by community-led review teams which assess ICANN’s performance in reaching its commitments. Reviews are critical to helping ICANN achieve its mission as detailed in Article 1 of the Bylaws.
A recording will be made available on the RDS-WHOIS2 Review Team wiki.
