Three Sub Groups continue to meet on a regular basis to review public comments received on the Working Group’s Initial Report . The full Working Group continues to meet regularly to address issues that the Sub Groups have referred to the full Working Group for additional consideration.

Following an extension, the public comment period on the Working Group’s supplemental Initial Report closed on 21 December. The supplemental Initial Report covers topics that were not included in the Initial Report and that the Working Group determined required additional consideration.

The full Working Group held one regular meeting in December:

  • Went over the status of Sub Groups A, B, and C and Work Track 5
  • Continued to discuss topics raised in public comment that the Sub Groups referred to the full Working Group for additional consideration and recommendations contained in the Competition, Consumer Trust, and Consumer Choice Review Team Final Report targeting the New gTLD Subsequent Procedures Policy Development Process Working Group

Sub Groups held the following meetings to make progress on the Working Group’s review of public comments on the Initial Report:

Sub Group A

Sub Group B
