.bcg is a Brand TLD delegated to the Root Zone in ICANN's New gTLD Program on 9 March 2016. The registry operator is The Boston Consulting Group, Inc.[1][2]

The application failed its initial evaluation as it scored a 0 on its "financial statements" question. This is the most common reason for applications having to go into extended evaluation.[3] The applicant subsequently requested and passed Extended Evaluation.[4]
