Implement consensus policy for IGO, INGO identifiers

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is seeking all ICANN generic top-level domain (gTLD) contracted parties to as a matter of urgency implement the new consensus policy concerning the protection of certain specific names of intergovernmental organizations (IGO) and international nongovernmental organizations (INGO) identifiers in all gTLDs, reports ITRealms.

This policy, ITRealms gathered  is  related only to those identifiers specifically approved by the ICANN Board in April 2014 following the conclusion of a Policy Development Process (PDP) conducted by the Generic Names Supporting Organization. 

According to ICANN, this direction does not include IGO and INGO identifiers for which Board approval is still pending or for which GNSO policy work remains ongoing.

ITRealms also gathered that contracted parties will have until 1 August 2018 to complete implementation of the new requirements for certain specific names of IGOs, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement (RCRC). 

Further ICANN explained that for INGOs, the implementation period will be 12 months from the release of the INGO Claims Systems Specification which is currently under development by ICANN org.

The protections, ITRealms gathered is within this policy pertain to specific names of certain IGOs, INGOs, the IOC, and the RCRC, according to the recommendations adopted by the ICANN Board.

"The policy requires registry operators to withhold the specified names from registration for IGOs, the IOC, and the RCRC at the second-level and provides an exceptions procedure for registration. For INGOs, the policy requires claims notices at the second-level" ICANN said.

Just as additional information is available at the ICANN Generic Names Supporting Organization working group and IGO/INGO implementation review team wiki pages.
