*Fourth Version of Root Zone Label Generation Rules (RZ-LGR-4) Published

06 November 2020

LOS ANGELES – 6 November 2020 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers (ICANN) today announced the publication of the fourth version
of Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/I020IC80P0gjNd220b0RE00> (RZ-LGR-4). Root
Zone Label Generation Rules (RZ-LGR) define a set of rules to determine
valid Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) labels for the root zone of the
Domain Name System (DNS) and their variant labels.

RZ-LGR-4 integrates 18 scripts, adding Chinese and Bangla scripts in this
version, in addition to Arabic, Devanagari, Ethiopic, Georgian, Gujarati,
Gurmukhi, Hebrew, Kannada, Khmer, Lao, Malayalam, Oriya, Sinhala, Tamil,
Telugu, and Thai. These rules were developed using the proposals submitted
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/eN08JE02000RCb0202kPg0d> by the Generation
Panels (GPs) formed for these scripts, which were finalized after Public
Comment <https://newsalerts.icann.org/s0Kb0P208RNl0C020g20d0E> proceedings.
The Armenian and Cyrillic script proposals have also been completed by the
respective GPs but have been deferred from integration by the Integration
Panel until proposals for related scripts are also finalized.

RZ-LGR development follows the Procedure to Develop and Maintain the Label
Generation Rules for the Root Zone in Respect of IDNA Labels
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/j2mR022PC00080gNEdL0b00>. A total of 28
scripts have been identified in the Maximal Starting Repertoire
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/uMN0008R0P0d0n02bg2CE20> for inclusion in
RZ-LGR. The remaining scripts will be included in future releases of RZ-LGR
as relevant proposals become available from the community.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world.
