Board authorizes extension of EPP implementation deadlines for gTLD registries.


Whereas, the publication on 26 March 2004 of RFC's 3730, 3731, 3732, 3733, 3734, and 3735, obligates most gTLD registry operators to implement Version 1.0 of the Extensible Provisioning Protocol by 1 August 2004.

Whereas, the Registry and the Registrar Constituencies have jointly requested an extension of time for the implementation of EPP.

Whereas, the Registry and Registrar Constituencies have held meetings in an attempt to develop a coordinated plan for implementation of the EPP v.1 across all gTLD registries.

Whereas, such a coordinated implementation would be beneficial and ease the transition and implementation necessary for registrars.

Whereas, it is apparent from the joint request from the two constituencies that an effort to develop a coordinated implementation plan is continuing and appears likely to be successful.

Whereas, granting the requested extension would allow for a smooth transition and implementation of EPP v1.0 and would be beneficial for the entire community of gTLD registries, registrars, and registrants.

Resolved [04.59], the President and General Counsel are authorized to issue an advisory providing an extension of all applicable gTLD registry EPP implementation deadlines to 31 December 2004.
