Join meeting:


The new Rules will have a direct impact on the governance structure of the
ccNSO, specifically on the respective roles and responsibilities of the
Council and ccNSO membership.

ICANN72 marked the 4th ccNSO Governance Session, building on the previous
sessions at ICANN69, ICANN70 and ICANN71, where the ccNSO Council and
Members have been discussing the need to update the internal rules of the
ccNSO, which were adopted in 2004. A ccNSO Working Group held various
consultations with the ccNSO membership to identify issues, find solutions
and to update about progress.

The ccNSO role on DNS Abuse: Next Steps

The ccNSO Council did not meet in November. Instead, the ccNSO Council
invited the ccTLD Community to join a public workshop on Thursday, 18
November 2021 at 12:00 UTC to further discuss the suggestions regarding
what the ccNSO should do or should not do with respect to DNS abuse, in
addition to what is already happening at the local and regional ccTLD

The ccNSO has organized various sessions on Domain Name System (DNS) abuse
in recent ICANN Public Meetings. ccTLD managers and others shared their
experiences with respect to mitigating DNS abuse, focusing on what ccTLDs
do nationally and regionally.

During ICANN72, the conversation shifted to focus on exploring the
potential role of the ccNSO itself. Both ccTLDs and other stakeholders
suggested activities the ccNSO could undertake to complement existing work
being done by the community.

The ccNSO Council will now develop a plan which will be presented to the
ccTLD community in early 2022. The goal is to launch the ccNSO activities
aimed at mitigating DNS abuse by ICANN73.


   - ICANN72 ccNSO session on DNS Abuse
   - November ccNSO Workshop

The ccNSO Council will reconvene on 16 December 2021 at 18:00 UTC. Council
meetings are open to observers. Contact the ccNSO Secretariat
<ccnsosecretariat at icann.org> for participation details.
