ICANN is now opening a public comment forum for the second annual review of the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process. Community members and specifically those who were directly involved in the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process, including requesters, public authorities, and end users of the delegated IDN ccTLDs, are kindly asked to provide feedback on their experience in the process.
The IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process completed its second year of operation in November 2011. The Final Implementation Plan for the Fast Track approved by the ICANN Board requires that the process undergo review annually.
Following completion of the second public comment, ICANN will compile community feedback and publish a summary and analysis of the comments received. Recommendations for changes to the Final Implementation Plan for the Fast Track Process will be publicly posted and presented to the ICANN Board at its next available meeting following the conclusion of the comment period. The ICANN Board will consider next steps, including which of the proposed changes should be implemented, and if additional community discussion is required.
