The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) is an existing consensus policy under review by the GNSO,

The GNSO Transfers Working Group identified a number of issues in its review of the current Policy and those issues have been grouped into suggested PDPs, set A-E, as per the Council's resolution of 8 May 2008,

The GNSO Council, in order to be more efficient and hopefully reduce the overall timeline for addressing all the IRTP PDPs, resolved on 16 April 2009 to combine the issues outlined under the original issue set B, addressing three issues on undoing IRTP transfers, and some of the issues outlined in issue set C, related to registrar lock status into one IRTP Part B,

The GNSO Issues Report Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy Part B was submitted to the GNSO Council on 15 May 2009,

The Issues Report recommends that the GNSO Council proceed with a Policy Development Process limited to consideration of the issues discussed in this report, and

The General Counsel of ICANN has indicated the topic is properly within the scope of the ICANN policy process and within the scope of the GNSO


The GNSO will initiate a PDP on the issues defined in Inter Registrar Transfer Policy Issues Report Part B.

A Working Group will be created for the purpose of fulfilling the requirements of the PDP.

27 Votes in favour.
The resolution passed unanimously

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
