ICANN Contractual Compliance 2018 Quarterly Reports

2018 Quarter One (January-March 2018) Registrar Closed Complaints by Closure Code

This report presents the number of closed complaints for registrars by closure code. When a complaint is closed, a description is selected which best describes the resolution of the complaint. The codes are categorized into three groups - Resolved, Out of Scope and ICANN Issue.

  • Resolved = the reporter's complaint has been resolved or the contracted party has reviewed the complaint, responded to ICANN and/or demonstrated compliance.
  • Out of Scope = the complaint cannot be addressed by ICANN because it is invalid or out of scope of ICANN's agreements/policies; or does not meet the minimum threshold for processing.
  • ICANN Issue = the complaint should not have been sent to contracted party due to ICANN error; or internal ICANN process needs to be completed before the Compliance process can continue.

A fourth category - Other - represents complaints previously closed which have been reopened and are currently active.
