The intent of the preliminary review of the ccNSO Recommendation to resolve policy issues pertaining to the selection of IDN country code Top Level Domains strings (IDN ccTLD strings) and the inclusion of IDN ccTLD managers in the ccNSO is to identify issues and advise Council on:

  • Whether additional work needs to be done on the proposed Bylaw changes included in the ccNSO Recommendation to resolve policy issues pertaining to the selection of IDN country code Top Level Domains strings (IDN ccTLD strings) and the inclusion of IDN ccTLD managers in the ccNSO, and way forward to include IDN ccTLD managers in the ccNSO, based on the 2013 Policy recommendations as soon as possible.
  • Scope delineation and mechanism proposals to review and - when considered necessary -update the 2013 Policy Recommendations, taking into account evolution of the Fast track Process, and other areas pertaining to the introduction and following introduction of IDN ccTLDs strings which require a recommended policy, for example variant management and retirement of IDN ccTLDs. The mechanisms could consist of an advice to re-launch the PDP or to start a new PDP on the selection of IDN ccTLD strings, taking into account the work done to date.
  • Possible mechanisms to cooperate and/or coordinate efforts to harmonize the development processes, procedures and/or criteria pertaining to the selection of (IDN cc)TLD strings
