DateActivity

January 16 2013The 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 2012The 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 2013Where 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 2013Each 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 2013Objection 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.
