Suggested timetable for gTLD RG during the Objection Period
|June 13 2012||Reveal Day - start of 7 month Objection Period|
|January 16 2013||The gTLD RG seeks comments from At-Large during the Objection Period. |
Comments received from At-Large are added to the new gTLD Dashboard at http://bit.ly/newgtld where other members of the At-Large community can read and post further comments.
|January 18 2012||The gTLD RG reviews the comments on the new gTLD Dashboard and for each gTLD application with At-Large comments,|
the gTLD RG decides whether or not to draft a formal objection statement directed to that gTLD application on either limited public interest grounds or community grounds or both.
|February 1 2013||Where the gTLD RG determines that an objection statement is appropriate, the gTLD RG proceeds to drafting the objection statement, keeping the At-Large community informed via the gTLD Dashboard.|
The gTLD RG publishes final objection statements to gTLD applications in a format ready to submit to the Dispute Resolution Service Provider (DRSP).
|March 1 2013||Each of the 5 Regional At-Large Organisations (RALOs) reviews each objection statement and decides whether it supports the filing of the objection statement by the ALAC.|
Each RALO sends to the ALAC its advice on the objection statements on whether the RALO supports the filing of an objection statement by the ALAC or not.
|March 2 2013||Objection statements NOT supported by at least 3 RALOs will not be considered by the ALAC. |
For those objection statements that are supported by 3 or more RALOs, the ALAC decides whether to file such objection statements to the DRSP.
|March 13 2013||end of Objection Period|
