After having all applications rejected by Zodiac for the past 6 months and 
ICANN letting them get away with it, Zodiac finally granted access!

We drew their attention to two facts:

1) They are asking about the name of the person in charge, who in this case 
happens to be a citizen of the EU, hence GDPR applies. So we asked a couple 
of GDPR-related questions....

2) There's no specific document called "Certificate of Organizational 
Continuity (CCR)" in our jurisdiction.

But this should not be necessary. The extra steps they are asking for would 
not scale to 1100 TLDs in CZDS. All of us already submit all the necessary 
credentialling information and agreements in our ICANN accounts.
