Detailed Information
*Section I: Description, Explanation, and Purpose*
The Consumer Metrics Working Group produced a draft Advice Letter 
defining Consumer, Consumer Trust, Consumer Choice, & Competition at the 
request of the ICANN Board Resolution (2010.12.10.30) to Supporting 
Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Committees (ACs). The Working Group is 
seeking community feedback on the draft, which will be considered by 
GNSO Council. If it is approved the GNSO Council will submit the Advice 
Letter to the ICANN Board.
*Section II: Background*

The GNSO Council chartered the CCTC Working Group on 22 September 2011. 
It was intended that theCharter 
<http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/cci-charter-07sep11-en.pdf>[PDF, 642 KB] 
could also be formally endorsed by the At-Large Advisory Committee 
(ALAC) and the Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO), but 
their endorsement was not a requirement for participation in the Working 
Group. The charter Drafting Team understood that its goal was to produce 
advice for consideration by GNSO, ccNSO, Governmental Advisory Committee 
(GAC) and ALAC, each of whom was asked for advice as part of the Board 
resolution discussed above. Each AC/SO may act independently on the CCTC 
Working Group's draft advice, and may endorse all, part, or none of the 
draft advice as it decides how to respond to the Board resolution.

The CCTC Working Group understands that the purpose of this advice is to 
provide ICANN's Board with definitions, measures, and targets that could 
be useful to the Affirmation of Commitments (AOC) Review Team that will 
convene one year after new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) are 
launched. However, the CCTC Working Group understands that this advice 
cannot pre-determine or otherwise limit the scope of the future AOC 
review team.
