Board resolves that ICANN management will complete draft legacy agreements.

Meeting Date: 
Tue, 13 Mar 2001

Implementation Actions: 
  • Continue to draft ICANN-ccTLD agreements.
    • Responsible entity: ICANN Management

Resolution Text: 

Since the last ICANN meeting in November 2000, ICANN Directors and management have significantly increased the amount of time and effort dedicated to contractual discussions with ccTLD managers.

Successful ccTLD/ICANN meetings have been held in Honolulu, Geneva, and Melbourne, bringing the ccTLD community notably closer to consensus on the nature and elements of appropriate agreements with ICANN.

It is resolved that:

[Resolution 01.37] ICANN management is directed to press forward with continued vigor toward the completion of draft legacy agreements, and to pursue, as needed, acceptable ccTLD agreements in triangular situations.

Additional Information: 
  • The resolution does not address funding for the items identified therein.
  • All ccTLD Agreements are available at http://www.icann.org/en/cctlds/agreements.html. In 2006, ICANN and interested ccTLD managers began entering into Exchanges of Letters and Accountability Frameworks, which are also available at that page.
