ICANN Requests Public Comments on Experiences with Inter-Registrar Transfer

Public Comment Period ends 1 February 2005.

The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy, a consensus policy developed through
the ICANN policy development process, was finalized in July of this year and
went into effect on 12 November 2004 after a four-month implementation
phase. All ICANN-accredited registrars and unsponsored gTLD registry
operators are required to follow this policy. Consistent with the policy
recommendations of the GNSO Council’s Transfers Task Force, ICANN staff will
report to the Council at three, six and twelve month intervals after
implementation with the goal of determining;

i. How effectively and to what extent the policies have been implemented and
adopted by Registrars, Registries and Registrants,

ii. Whether or not modifications to these policies should be considered as a
result of the experiences gained during the implementation and monitoring

iii. The effectiveness of the dispute resolution processes and a summary of
the filings that have been resolved through the process.

In order to perform a meaningful evaluation, ICANN therefore invites any
comments from the community on experiences with the initial stages following
implementation of the policy, including any suggested modifications to be

publicly accessible and will be reviewed by ICANN staff for purposes of
completing the required policy review. Comments for the first review should
be submitted by 1 February 2005.

The transfer information page is at http://www.icann.org/transfers.

For specific questions about the policy, please send an email message to:
transfer-questions at icann.org.
This address is directed to staff who can answer policy inquiries. These
messages are not publicly posted, although they may be reviewed to identify
common issues.

Thank you.
