ICANN Launches Contractual Compliance Newsletter

3 April 2008

MARINA DEL REY, Calif.: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and 
Numbers today launched the Contractual Compliance Newsletter, a 
newsletter that offers a snapshot of the wide range of compliance work 
being done by ICANN.

Each issue of the newsletter will cover enforcement statistics, an 
in-depth look at part of the compliance process, information about 
audits and studies, and upcoming events. The Newsletter will also 
include new advisories for registries and registrars to help them 
understand and continue to improve their compliance with ICANN contracts.

In recent feedback on ICANNs performance under the Joint Project 
Agreement with the US National Telecommunications Infrastructure 
Administration, there was input about ICANN's work on Whois accuracy, 
and that compliance needed to be better understood. ICANN's goal is that 
this newsletter will be an important way to address these concerns and 
continue community dialogue about how to improve contractual compliance.

The first issue of the Newsletter explains why and how ICANN does 
contract compliance with our contracted parties; gTLD registries and 
registrars. It also includes statistics on the consumer complaints ICANN 
receives and on enforcement notices we send out. This issues section on 
studies and audits includes an update on the Whois Data Accuracy Study, 
the Registrar Whois Data Inaccuracy Audit and the Performance 
Specifications Audit of Registries.

Please send your comments about the newsletter and any topics you would 
like to see covered in it to compliance at icann.org.
