16:3017:00Consumer metrics advice

What is it about: Members of the Consumer Metrics Working Group will brief the GNSO Council about the WG’s final version of an Advice Letter to the ICANN Board relating to the use of Consumer Trust, Consumer Choice & Competition within the Affirmation of Commitments.  The WG submitted the Advice Letter to the GNSO Council on 17 August 2012 and it was briefly presented at the 13 September 2012 GNSO Council meeting.  It is expected that the GNSO Council will deliberate and eventually approve the submission of the advice to the ICANN Board at Toronto.

Background information: The GNSO Consumer Metrics Working Group was tasked with establishing the definition, measures, and three year targets for those measures for consumer trust, consumer choice, and competition in the context of the domain name system and as utilized in the Affirmation of Commitments (AoC).  The output from the GNSO WG takes the form of an Advice Letter to the ICANN Board for their consideration in preparation of future AoC Review on measuring the success and effectiveness of the new gTLD Program.  Further, the ICANN Board requested the remaining Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees to provide advice on Consumer Metrics as well.  The ALAC have submitted their acceptance of the advice and the ccNSO and GAC continue to formulate their position.
