LOS ANGELES – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (lCANN) announced the release of the updated Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) country code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD) Fast Track Process Final Implementation Plan (FIP), which includes changes proposed by the Joint ccNSO SSAC Response as approved by the ICANN Board on 29 October 2017, according to the official website of ICANN.

The updated IDN ccTLD FIP includes the implementation of the risk mitigation measures evaluation step after the string similarity review process. This evaluation for the relevant requesters of IDN ccTLD strings will be undertaken based on the Guideline for Risk Mitigation Measures Evaluation [PDF, 285 KB]. ICANN will be notifying relevant IDN ccTLD Fast Track requesters regarding their eligibility to ask for an evaluation for the submitted IDN ccTLD string. The requesters will have three months to file the request, along with the mitigation measures, based on the updated IDN ccTLD FIP.

The updated plan supersedes the previous version of the IDN ccTLD FIP published on 5 November 2013.
