Dear GNSO Council members,

The GNSO Council Action List contains the following action item from the
Buenos Aires meeting:

SSAC 20/6 23/7  Julie Hedlund / Steve Chan  Determine the linkage for New
gTLD Work between SSAC and other groups

Steve Chan and I can provide the following guidance concerning this action
item: There are three ways that the SSAC and other groups may be linked to
the New gTLD work.  First, if a PDP results from the Issue Report on New
gTLD Subsequent Procedures then per the PDP Manual the SSAC and all other
SO/ACs will have to be solicited for input by the PDP Working Group at an
early stage.  

Second, the SSAC could choose to engage directly in the work of the PDP
Working Group as a member of the Group.  If SSAC members join a Working
Group they would indicate whether they would be speaking/participating on
behalf of the SSAC or as individuals.

Third, the SSAC recently formed a Work Party on New gTLDs.  It should be
noted that SSAC Work Parties do not always produce deliverables.  However,
if the Work Party on New gTLDs produces a document that is subsequently
approved for publication by the SSAC this could result in guidance
concerning new gTLDs.  Previous SSAC publications relating to new gTLDs are:

[SAC062]: SSAC Advisory Concerning the Mitigation of Name Collision Risk (07
November 2013): 
[SAC066]: SSAC Comment Concerning JAS Phase One Report on Mitigating the
Risk of DNS Namespace Collisions (06 June 2014):

Please let us know if you have any questions concerning this action item and
our response.

Best regards,
Julie Hedlund, Policy Director
