Board approves implementation of ENG as new profession-specific second-level domain in .PRO.
Tina Dam introduced the topic for discussion for requests from RegistryPro for ENG.PRO and ING.PRO. John Klensin provided additional comments. Following additional discussion, Michael D. Palage moved for a vote on a resolution approving RegistryPro's request, which was seconded by Hagen Hultzsch. During the discussion of the motion, it was determined that RegistryPro should provide additional information regarding how they intend to implement ING.PRO and instructed staff to ask RegistryPro to resubmit their request with additional information about their intended technical implementation. The following resolution was voted on by the Board:
Whereas the .PRO Registry Agreement, Appendix L, Section 4, contains a procedure by which the registry operator may propose to ICANN the implementation of additional profession specific second level domains.
Whereas, the registry operator on 20 December 2004 followed this procedure and proposed to ICANN the introduction of a new profession-specific second level domain (ENG.PRO).
Resolved (05.01), the President and the General Counsel are authorized to approve the proposal made by the registry operator and hence allow for implementation of ENG.PRO.
This resolution was unanimously approved by the Board, 12-0. Njeri Rionge and Hualin Qian were not present for the vote.
