ICANN 62 was ICANN's Policy Forum for 2018 and was held from 25-28 June in Panama City, Panama. The 4-day meeting featured a variety of important issues, including the Expedited Policy Development Process on the Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data, geographic names at the top-level (Work Track 5), as well as a number of reviews.

Sessions

ccNSO

The ccNSO Council adopted the Final Report of the Customer Standing Committee (CSC) Charter Review Team and ratified the amended CSC Charter. Régis Massé (.fr) was appointed vice chair of the TLD-OPS Standing Committee, Jordan Carter (.nz) to the ccNSO Strategic and Operational Planning Standing Committee, and Brent Carey (.nz) to the Retirement Policy Development Process Working Group. The ccNSO Tech Day focused on natural disasters, disaster recovery, and business continuity planning.

GNSO

Much of the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures Policy Development Process Work Track 5 discussion focused on the future treatment of city names that are not capital city names. The CCWG-Auction Proceeds considered the following four mechanisms:

  1. a new ICANN Proceeds Allocation Department in the ICANN Organization to manage the fund.
  2. a new ICANN Proceeds Allocation Department to collaborate with existing charitable organizations.
  3. a new structure independent from ICANN org, such as an ICANN foundation.
  4. one or more established entities, such as a foundation or fund, with ICANN org overseeing their processes to ensure mission and fiduciary duties are met.

The GNSO Council-formed EPDP draft team held multiple sessions to determine membership criteria, composition, leadership, scope, decision-methodology, conflict resolution, and status reporting to undertake a policy development process to confirm, or not, the Temporary Specification as a Consensus Policy.

ALAC

The ICANN Board accepted the ALAC Review and directed the ALAC to convene an At-Large Review Implementation Working Group. ALAC stated its support for the proposition as long as it offers the proceeds to nonprofit organizations that serve the public interest. The ALAC suggested that ICANN permit the release of O.COM and allow Verisign to conduct a third-party auction; third-party auction service providers screen candidates for auction; and Verisign forfeit the auction proceeds and renewals to non-profit entities.[1] The ALAC and SSAC discussed how the KSK Rollover, Name Collision Analysis Project, and access to domain name registration data could affect end users.

GAC

The GAC met with the ICANN Board to discuss an update on the .amazon issue.

RSSAC

The RSSAC held five sessions publicizing RSSAC036, 37, and 38.
