NGPC Takes Action on GAC Durban Advice on New gTLDs

12 September 2013

The ICANN Board New gTLD Program Committee (NGPC) met on 10 September 2013
and, among other things, reached a decision regarding the GAC's
n> further advice on new gTLDs. The GAC conveyed its advice to the NGPC in
_Durban_20130717.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1374215119858&api=v2> Durban
Communiqué [PDF, 103 KB], issued on 18 July 2013. Applicants submitted
responses to the advice on 23 August 2013.

At its most recent meeting, the NGPC adopted the Durban Scorecard, available
-10sep13-en.pdf> Annex 1 [PDF, 119 KB], disposing of all of the GAC's
further advice with one exception – the NGPC indicated it would take action
on the advice concerning the .amazon string at a future meeting.

The NGPC also discussed the remaining open items from the Beijing
Communiqué. These include the advice pertaining to protections for IGO names
and acronyms; Category 1 Safeguard advice; and Category 2 advice with
respect to exclusive access registries. The NGPC and staff are working with
the GAC to identify a time and place for further dialogue on these items.

The NGPC will next meet on 28.09.2013 and will provide a further update
following that meeting.

The New gTLD evaluation and objection processes remains on track while the
NGPC continues its deliberations. The NGPC is prioritizing its work in order
to allow the greatest number of applications to move forward as soon as
possible. We will continue to provide updates on the NGPC's progress in
responding to the GAC Beijing and Durban Advice.
