TAS Interruption - Update (7 May 2012)
 Statement by Akram Atallah, COO
  7 May 2012

In recognition of the inconvenience caused by the temporary suspension of
the TLD application system, ICANN will provide a full refund of the
application fees paid by any new gTLD applicant that wishes to withdraw its
application prior to publication of the list of applied-for new top-level
domain names.

A resolution<http://www.icann.org/en/groups/board/documents/resolutions-new-gtld-06may12-en.htm>authorizing
full refunds was adopted during a Board of Directors workshop
in Amsterdam on Sunday, 6 May 2012.

We recognize that this represents an increase of only US $5000 over the
refund that withdrawing applicants would otherwise receive, but we believe
it is an important part of fulfilling our commitment to treat applicants

We regret the difficulties that we know the temporary suspension of TAS is
