However, claiming immunity in this way effectively voids the underlying ruling, as the IGO is no longer agreeing to submit to the jurisdiction of the court in question. The EPDP charter addresses this issue, and builds on the original charter addendum for an IGO work track from PDP-RPM.<ref name="charter">[https://community.icann.org/display/GNSOIWT/2.+Charter EPDP-IGO Workspace - Charter]</ref>

The EPDP Team on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGO sought input on preliminary recommendations in the Initial Report that had not yet reached
 +
agreement about whether an appropriate policy solution could be developed that:
 +
# accounts for the possibility that an IGO may enjoy jurisdictional immunity in certain circumstances;
 +
# does not affect the right and ability of registrants to file judicial proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction;
 +
# preserves registrants' rights to judicial review of an initial [[UDRP|Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy]] or [[Uniform Rapid Suspension]] decision; and
 +
# recognizes that the existence and scope of IGO jurisdictional immunity in any particular situation is a legal issue to be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction.

All 14 individual commentators opposed the development of policy recommendations that would apply specifically to IGOs and domain name disputes when the IGO files a complaint against a domain name registrant. Many worried that the recommendations would harm or reduce registrant rights if they restricted a registrant’s ability to file judicial proceedings against an IGO or compel a registrant to agree to arbitration.<ref>[https://itp.cdn.icann.org/en/files/generic-names-supporting-organization-council-gnso-council/public-comment-summary-report-epdp-igo-20dec2021-en.pdf Public Comment Summary Report on Initial Report from the EPDP on Specific Curative Rights Protections for IGOs, ICANN Files]
