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.
