The ccNSO Council invites the ccTLD Community to join part two of the ccNSO Universal Acceptance Workshop on Wednesday, 18 January 2023 at 13:00 UTC to further discuss the suggestions regarding what the ccNSO should do or should not do with respect to Universal Acceptance, in addition to what is already happening at the local and regional ccTLD level. Part one of the workshop was held on 15 December 2022. Consult the recording here.

During the second part of the workshop, we will further explore the expectations by the ccTLD community regarding potential ccNSO action on Universal Acceptance, and how to organize next efforts. Following conclusion of the workshop, the ccNSO Council will develop a plan which will be presented to the ccTLD community at the upcoming ICANN76 Community Forum in Cancun (MX), held 11-16 March 2023.

The Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) has organized a session on Universal Acceptance during the ICANN75 ICANN Public Meeting. Country code top-level domain (ccTLD) managers and others explored the potential role of the ccNSO itself. Both ccTLDs and other stakeholders suggested activities the ccNSO could undertake to complement existing work being done by the community. Recordings of the ICANN75 ccNSO session on Universal Acceptance have been posted here.
