*ICANN org Responds to the European Data Protection Board’s Public
Consultation on the Board’s Guidelines on the Concepts of Controller and
19 October 2020
BRUSSELS – 19 October 2020 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers (ICANN) announced today that it has responded to the European
Data Protection Board's (EDPB) public consultation on its *Guidelines
07/2020 on the concepts of controller and processor in the GDPR*
<https://newsalerts.icann.org/NR00wC2d0002g7E03N0082P>. The EDPB is an
independent European body whose purpose is to ensure consistent application
of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and to promote cooperation
among the European Union data protection authorities.
The issue of controllership has been critical throughout the work of the
Expedited Policy Development Process on the Temporary Specification for
gTLD Registration Data (EPDP) and remains important for the implementation
of a System for Standardized Access/Disclosure as recommended by the EPDP
Phase 2 Team.
In ICANN org's response to the public consultation, which closed today, it
was noted that while the guidelines are a helpful step, ICANN org believes
that further clarity would be beneficial in three areas:
Precise attribution of "*control"* to *particular stages in the
processing* under a micro-level analytic framework.
When and how is *"control" inferred from a contract*, absent a party's
actual involvement in processing contemplated under any such agreement.
The newly introduced concept of *"converging decisions."*
The full response submitted by ICANN org is available here
All contributions to the public comment will be available on the EDPB
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.
