>blog post, I detailed our 23 April meeting with 
>the Article 29 Working Party (WP29) Technology 
>Subgroup in Brussels. This meeting was an 
>important follow-up to the 
><https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/correspondence/jelinek-to-marby-11apr18-en.pdf>letter 
>[PDF, 400 KB] that WP29 sent us on 11 April, and 
>we remain appreciative of the opportunity to 
>receive their feedback on the progress made in 
>developing an interim compliance model.
>It was clear after our meeting that a number of 
>important questions still remained, and we 
>agreed to provide a letter requesting additional 
>input on how to bring the ICANN org and 
>contracted parties into compliance with the law. 
>That letter was sent to the WP29, and is 
>available 
><https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/correspondence/marby-to-jelinek-10may18-en.pdf>here 
>[PDF, 564 KB].
>We hope that the WP29's reply will provide us 
>with greater clarity and guidance as we move forward.
>Our ongoing dialogue with the WP29 has been a 
>key part of our overall work to identify a model 
>that will both maintain the current WHOIS to the 
>greatest extent possible, while also complying 
>with the European Union's General Data 
>Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is important 
>that we strike the right balance that allows us 
>to both maintain a stable and secure Internet 
>and comply with our bylaw obligations relating 
>to WHOIS, while also ensuring compliance with the law.
