ICANN Community Declares Success of AGP Limits Consensus Policy

Proposed Final Status Report to the GNSO Council on AGP Limits Policy Implementation

19 November 2010

The Add Grace Period (AGP) Limits Policy, implemented on 1 April 2009, resulted in a 99.7% decrease in AGP deletes and illustrates the success of ICANN’s consensus-driven, bottom-up policy development process. Community members identified a problem, initiated policy discussions, and generated a solution that has produced effective and sustained results.

ICANN today is posting its fourth and proposed final status report<http://www.icann.org/en/tlds/agp-limits-policy-report-18nov10-en.pdf> to the GNSO on the implementation of AGP Limits Policy. This report presents ICANN’s experience implementing the Policy, provides statistical information on net new registrations, AGP deletes, the percent of names deleted during the AGP for each TLD, and the disposition of exemption requests for the period.

ICANN committed to analyzing and reporting on the effects of the Policy to the GNSO at six-month intervals for two years after its implementation. The first status report<http://www.icann.org/en/tlds/agp-limits-policy-report-10jun09-en.pdf> was issued on 10 June 2009, the second status report<http://www.icann.org/en/tlds/agp-limits-policy-report-14dec09-en.pdf> on 14 December 2009, and the third status report<http://www.icann.org/en/tlds/agp-limits-policy-report-01jun10-en.pdf> on 1 June 2010. The purpose of these reports is “to allow the GNSO to determine when, if ever, these recommendations and any ensuing policy require additional clarification or attention based on the results of the reports prepared by ICANN Staff.” On 10 June 2010, the GSNO Council discussed whether additional Policy work was necessary based upon the results of the implementation and whether the reporting requirement should be amended or eliminated.! At that meeting the GNSO Council determined that the successful outcomes from the Policy did not warrant additional work at that time and that staff should continue its reporting requirement through the end of the two-year cycle. The publication of this fourth and proposed final report fulfills this reporting requirement to the GNSO.
