Launched under the Affirmation of Commitments (AoC), the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice Review Team (CCT-RT) was formed to assess the New Generic Top-Level Domain (New gTLD) Program in three areas: competition, consumer trust and consumer choice. The review also assessed the effectiveness of safeguards put in place to mitigate issues arising from the introduction of new gTLDs and the Program's application and evaluation process. The review, now contemplated under ICANN Bylaws section 4.6, examined the degree to which the process of implementing the New gTLD Program was successful in producing desired results and achieving the stated objectives. 

The CCT-RT produced 35 final recommendations for Board consideration and released its CCT Final Report on 8 September 2018.
