Dear All,

The GNSO Council, at its meeting on 17 April, 2008, unanimously approved
the creation of a short term drafting team charged with producing a
recommendation for Council deliberation that includes precise wording
for the 4  provisions for reason for denial of Inter-Registrar transfers.

The task includes suggesting changes to the initial formulations based
on the comments received from the constituencies and from  the public
comment period.


1.	No payment for previous registration period (including credit card
charge-backs) if the domain name is past its expiration date or for
previous or current registration periods if the domain name has not yet
expired. In all such cases, however, the domain name must be put into
"Registrar Hold" status by the Registrar of Record prior to the denial
of transfer (Reason #5 in the policy).

2.	A domain name was already in “lock status” provided that the
Registrar provides a readily accessible and reasonable means for the
Registered Name Holder to remove the lock status (Reason #7 in the policy).

3.	A domain name is in the first 60 days of an initial registration
period (Reason #8 in the policy).

4.	A domain name is within 60 days (or a lesser period to be determined)
after being transferred (apart from being transferred back to the
original Registrar in cases where both Registrars so agree and/or where
a decision in the dispute resolution process so directs) (Reason #9 in
the policy).

The drafting team is open to participants from all constituencies,
Nominating Committee appointees and liaisons to the GNSO Council. Olof
Nordling will be the staff lead  and the proposed timeline should allow
for a public comment period on the recommendation and a  vote to be
taken at the Paris meeting in June 2008.

It was further suggested that the group use the mail-server list
with the public archives at:

Please let the Secretariat  <gnso.secretariat at gnso.icann.org> know by
COB on Tuesday 22 April, 2008 who would like to be on the drafting team
so that there is no delay in starting work.

Thank you.
Kind regards,

Glen de Saint Géry
GNSO Secretariat - ICANN
