Who:    ccTLD managers, Government, people interested in the topic*


The ccNSO has established a Working Group to look at the Delegation,
Re-delegation and Retirement of ccTLD's, essentially reviewing the
existing policies and guidelines used by IANA, and comparing these to
the actual procedures adopted by IANA. The working group's aim is to
make recommendations to the ccNSO on any gaps between policies and
practices, and is not empowered to engage in any policy development

While the working group can not have any specific delegation,
redelegation or retirement procedure re-litigated, members of the
working group are interested in specific issues that have arisen in the
past, where ccTLDs have been through this process.

The Working Group is convening a 90 minute open workshop to be held on
Sunday 7 March (14:00 - 15:30 hours, local time) at ICANN Nairobi, and
invites stakeholders to provide presentations on issues relating to the
delegation, re-delegation or retirement of ccTLDs, and their experiences
with IANA. Stakeholders may be any group comprising the local Internet

Presentations should be concise, and will be confined to a maximum of 10
minutes per speaker, and should seek to address any perceived shortfalls
between the policies and guidelines (including RFC1591, ICANN ICP1, and
the Government Advisory Committee Principles on delegation and
re-delegation of ccTLDs) and the actual procedure used by IANA. The
session will be, at a minimum, audio recorded, and remote participation
will be enabled.

This Working Group is a large and diverse group who would appreciate the
opportunity to hear from the ccTLD community.

If you would like to make a presentation at this workshop, please
contact me off list.
