Starting Tuesday, 18 April 2023 (00:01 UTC), ccNSO members - via their Emissaries – can participate in a vote regarding the review mechanism policy. To learn more about the proposed policy and the voting process, you are invited to participate in a webinar.
The vote is to determine whether the ccNSO membership supports the ccNSO Council's recommendation to adopt the proposed policy which will introduce a review mechanism with respect to decisions pertaining to the delegation, transfer, revocation, and retirement of ccTLDs.

What is this policy about?
This policy will introduce a review mechanism with respect to decisions pertaining to the delegation, transfer, revocation and retirement of the delegated ccTLDs. It offers ccTLD managers, and applicants for new ccTLDs - as direct customers of the IANA Naming Function - an independent review mechanism for specifically identified IANA Function Operator (IFO) decisions, and it increases the predictability and legitimacy of those decisions. In developing the proposed policy, the ccPDP3 Review Mechanism working group ensured that the following objectives were met: low cost, fast and fundamentally fair.
