LOS ANGELES –  The Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) voted to reaffirm the “Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data.” 

According to ICANN, the Temporary Specification was originally approved by the Board on May 17, 2018, in order to establish temporary requirements for how ICANN and its contracted parties will comply with existing ICANN contractual requirements and community-developed policies in relation to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Under the procedures for adopting Temporary Policies outlined in the Registry Agreement and Registrar Accreditation Agreement, the Board must reaffirm the adoption every 90 days, and may continue to do so for no more than a year.
