LOS ANGELES - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced in a press release that it will host a community webinar on the Operational Design Assessment (ODA) for the New Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) Subsequent Procedures (SubPro) Final Report. The event will take place on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 at 13:00–15:00 and 20:00–22:00 UTC.

In September 2021, the ICANN Board took action "to initiate the [Operational Design Phase] (ODP) and direct[ed] ICANN org to prepare an assessment of the operational requirements and impact of the Final Report Outputs according to the scope specified by the Board for the purpose of facilitating the Board's determination of the recommendations." As per the SubPro Scoping Document, the ODP aims to assess the potential risks, anticipated costs, resource requirements, timelines, dependencies, interaction with the Global Public Interest Framework, which is currently being piloted, and other matters related to implementation of the Final Report Outputs.

The outputs contain important recommendations for the growth of the Internet namespace in support of ICANN's mission, including supporting a multilingual Internet for users around the world.

This webinar will:

• Provide a high-level overview of the key findings of the ODA;
• Present an analysis of the expected timeline and costs for the next round;
• Outline the main issues of concern identified;
• Answer any questions the ICANN community may have about the content of the ODA.

All interested community members are invited to attend the webinar. Please note that the content of both sessions will be the same and they will be recorded.
