About ccPDP4

This fourth-ever ccNSO Policy Development Process aims to develop policy recommendations for the ICANN Board.

In time, the results of this ccPDP will replace the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process, which currently guides the selection process of IDN ccTLD strings. During its meeting on 21 May, the ccNSO Council adopted the Issue Report on Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) country code top-level domain strings. With the adoption of this report, the fourth policy development process (ccPDP) for the ccNSO is initiated.
