ICANN Launches Contractual Compliance Newsletter

ICANN launched the Contractual Compliance Newsletter, a newsletter that offers a snapshot of the wide range of compliance work being done by ICANN.Each issue of the newsletter will cover enforcement statistics, an in-depth look at part of the compliance process, information about audits and studies, and upcoming events. The Newsletter will also include new advisories for registries and registrars to help them understand and continue to improve their compliance with ICANN contracts.In recent feedback on ICANN’s performance under the Joint Project Agreement with the US National Telecommunications Infrastructure Administration, there was input about ICANN¹s work on Whois accuracy, and that compliance needed to be better understood. ICANN’s goal is that this newsletter will be an important way to address these concerns and continue community dialogue about how to improve contractual compliance.The first issue of the Newsletter explains why and how ICANN does contract compliance with our contracted parties; gTLD registries and registrars.
