LOS ANGELES - ICANN has implemented the framework established by the Measures for Letter/Letter Two-Character ASCII Labels to Avoid Confusion with Corresponding Country Codes [PDF, 334 KB] by authorizing the release of all letter/letter two-character ASCII labels at the second level for registry operators subject to these Measures.

The ICANN Board approved the Measures on November 8, 2016. According to ICANN, they provide a standardized framework to help Internet users avoid confusion between country codes and corresponding letter/letter two-character domain names. The framework and authorization are the result of more than two years of work by members of the Internet community and the ICANN Organization.

Previously, registry operators were required to reserve and individually request permission from ICANN to release second-level two-letter ASCII labels.
