WEBINAR: WHOIS Accuracy Reporting System Phase 2 Cycle 2 Report

8 June 2016

On 8 June 2016, ICANN published the WHOIS Accuracy Reporting System (ARS)
Phase 2 Cycle 2 report. ICANN will hold an interactive webinar on 16 June
2016 UTC to review findings of the study and their implications for the

The Cycle 2 report acts as a follow-on to the Phase 2 Cycle 1 report
published in December 2015. In Cycle 2, ICANN measured both the overall
accuracy for syntax (formatting) and operability (e.g., does an email or
telephone call go through?) of a sample of WHOIS records in gTLDs. The
results include comparisons based on:

   - Registrar Accreditation Agreements (2009 RAA v. 2013 RAA)
   - Top-level domain types (e.g., new or "legacy" gTLDs)
   - Trends in data from Cycle 1 to Cycle 2
   - Regional accuracy differences, including two new sub-analyses: reasons
   for error by region and language script type vs. accuracy

The WHOIS Accuracy Reporting System is an ICANN initiative born out of
recommendations from the 2012 WHOIS Review Team to improve oversight of the
WHOIS Program. ICANN committed to proactively identifying potentially
inaccurate gTLD WHOIS contact data and forwarding potentially inaccurate
records to gTLD registrars for investigation and follow up. The ARS reports
provide information on nonconformances (based on the applicable Registrar
Accreditation Agreement), which ICANN's Compliance team uses for follow-up
with registrars regarding potentially inaccurate records.
