Hello everyone

We need to be super careful here.  Firstly these are implementation details not policy principles although I appreciate efforts to resolve conflicts.

However, an evaluation panel has one function and that is to evaluate applications for all kinds of TLDs against a set of criteria.

It is unwise for it to have any other function, most particularly where there could be any cause for any conflict of interest with respect to any advisory role.  Applicants should do their own due diligence in all aspects of their applications.

No applications for any TLDs should be “hard cases” when application rules are clear, when evaluation takes place objectively and where contracting arrangements are known in advance with the production of a draft contract which is published along with the application materials.   If it takes us longer to get to consensus on the policy principles that guide those application rules then it is likely time well spent.

Thank you Jorge.
This seems to be a very good idea, but we need first to be clear among us what will be the advice that such group will provide.
The need to arrive to a consensus on principles and criteria is primordial. Then of course –once we have clear guidelines- the case by case implementation could be very useful.

Hi Jorge

This is a good idea. WT5 should work towards solutions that reduces conflicts. The more that can be done in advance to avoid complaints and litigation afterwards, the better.

Looking forward to hear other members view on this.

Kind regards

Dear Emily

Thanks for the useful slides.

One question/suggestion which comes to my mind: there is a geographic names review as part of the initial evaluation, i.e. when the applicant already has made significant investments. What if, in addition to that review, the geographic names panel would also be available on an advisory basis during the application preparation phase? It could advise on hard/unclear cases and also on names with geographic significance not covered by the specific geonames categories/lists included in the AGB 2012, as well as help in identifying relevant public authorities (with help from ICANN Org and GAC Members if needed)…

Probably this would avoid a lot of headaches and unexpected issues when the application is already further down the road, and would allow for early contact with the relevant public authorities…

Hope this helps
