Standing Agenda Items

    1. Statements approved by the ALAC

      • Draft Project Plan for the Proposed Name Collision Analysis Project (NCAP)
        As the principle voice of end users within the ICANN community, the ALAC supported the SSAC in its efforts to address the issue of Name Collisions, while encouraging clarity on the SSAC's bidding process for work contemplated under the Draft Project Plan.

      • Plan to Restart the Root Key Signing Key (KSK) Rollover Process
        The ALAC provided several recommendations to ICANN regarding the impending KSK Rollover, and called for a holistic review including a risk assessment of the alternatives, in time for further discussion at ICANN62. 

      • Data Protection/Privacy Issues: ICANN-proposed Interim Model 
        Overall, the ALAC agreed with the Interim Compliance Model’s tiered access approach, while remaining divided on several other issues including purposes of processing WHOIS data, applying the Interim Model on a global basis, and distinction between legal and natural persons.

      • Draft Procedure for Community gTLD Change Requests
        Community TLDs are of crucial importance to At-Large. The ALAC supported the Draft Procedure (including the proposed Community gTLD Change Request Form), subject to three provisos articulated in the Statement: (1) Required outreach to the TLD community, (2) Change request comment period, and (3) Approval criteria.

      • ICANN Fellowship Program Community Consultation
        The ALAC suggested that changes (i.e. metrics to gauge ROI, tracking outreach and engagement of the Fellows in their respective communities) are required in order to achieve greater effectiveness of the Program, not only to meet At-Large policy goals relating to the DNS.
