Dear ATRT-2 members-

As discussed on our call last week related to the WHOIS-RT implementation efforts,  please find attached the Report on the Conclusion of the 2013 RAA Negotiations forwarded to the GNSO Council  addressing the policy work to be commenced with respect to privacy and proxy services.

All the best,

Subject: [council] Staff paper on RAA Remaining Issues PDP

Dear all,

Please find attached the ICANN staff paper summarizing the remaining issues from the completed RAA negotiations to be considered and recommendations developed by the GNSO, following the Board's initial request in October 2011, the Final RAA Issue Report in March 2012 and, most recently, the approval by the Board of the new 2013 RAA in June 2013, signifying the conclusion of negotiations on the RAA. The paper includes a procedural summary of each of these various stages, an annex of relevant excerpts from a number of prior community efforts and reports, and (in Section VIII) an Issues Chart detailing specific issues and questions pertaining to the "remaining issues" to be considered by the GNSO in this PDP.

We hope you'll find the paper a useful summary and follow-up from the initial briefing that Margie and I conducted at the Council meeting earlier this month. As discussed separately at that meeting, one of the options for improving or moving a PDP along was the possibility of having a draft Working Group Charter first developed by ICANN staff. Given the Council's hesitation at that meeting to move forward with such a proposal, however, we have not included a draft charter in this paper. Should this paper, especially the Issues Chart, find approval with you and your constituencies and stakeholder groups, we would be happy to include at your direction a draft charter for this particular PDP as a means of "testing" one of the suggested PDP improvements.

We look forward to further discussions on the RAA Remaining Issues PDP at the next Council meeting. I should note, in addition, that we are hopeful that the GNSO-commissioned WHOIS study on Privacy/Proxy Abuse, which as you know is being conducted by the National Physical Laboratory in the United Kingdom, will be published before the end of the month - which would allow for its findings to be considered by the Council and the GNSO community during the establishment of the WG for this PDP.

Thanks very much,
