Subject: [gnso-chairs] Agenda for GNSO-GAC Bilateral on 25 October 2021: Preliminary Points from the GAC

Dear GNSO Council Leadership and Jeff,

Please find below the GAC talking points and questions prepared for the GNSO-GAC Bilateral next week as part of ICANN72. We hope this is helpful to prepare for our dialogue.

Thank you,

Kind regards,
25 Oct. 2021  |  ICANN72 Bilateral Questions

Agenda (Confirmed)

  *   EPDP Phase 2 A - Status and Scope of GNSO Vote on Recommendations;
  *   Accuracy - Scoping team to kick-off after EPDP 2A is finished;
  *   DNS Abuse -  and the still open question whether policy work is envisaged by GNSO;
  *   EPDP-IGO Curative protections

EPDP Phase 2A:
Regarding EPDP Phase 2A, the GAC wishes to note that eight (8) minority statements were filed to the EPDP Phase 2A final report, representing arguably the views of a majority of ICANN constituents. Bearing this in mind, to what extent does the GNSO Council consider that the Final Report reflects consensus from the community and is in the public interest?
The GAC considers that this possibly merits a deeper reflection on the current Policy Development Process with a view to ensuring that it is better able to reflect the views and input of all ICANN constituents - what are the GNSO Council's views on such a reflection exercise?


  *   Continues to be a GAC priority topic
  *   To be handled by the upcoming GNSO Accuracy Scoping Team
  *   GAC confirmed its representation (EC and US)
  *   GNSO Council appointed a Chair for the Scoping Team (Michael Palage)
  *   Timeline is not yet clear
  *   Any further updates at this stage

DNS Abuse:

  *   A long-standing topic of interest to the GAC
  *   GAC is closely following any relevant developments
  *   Pending question on how to handle (PDP, CCWG, ...)
  *   GAC's interest in advancing community discussions, driving progress and converging views prior the launch of new gTLDs
  *   GNSO thoughts on potential next steps

EPDP IGO Curative Protections:

  *   The GAC has provided input and Advice on this topic, notably with respect to the creation of a curative mechanism which respects IGO status under international law (in particular with respect to privileges and immunities), and looks forward to a positive resolution of the current EPDP.
  *   At the same time, as the public comment period on the EPDP Initial Report will have closed yesterday (24-Oct), it may be appropriate to revisit this topic at a later occasion.
