ICANN and Pre-Delegation Testing (PDT) service provider Stiftelsen för Internetinfrastruktur (.SE) seek New gTLD applicant volunteers to participate in the Pre-Delegation Testing Pilot. Pilot participants will prepare and submit test materials in the coming weeks, well ahead of the planned 22 April 2013 start of Pre-Delegation Testing. The Pilot is a practice test; all applicants must pass the final pre-delegation test prior to receiving approval to proceed to introduction into the root zone. The Pilot will help ICANN and .SE verify the operational process, systems, specifications and criteria of the test.
ICANN will select approximately five (5) applicants from the list of volunteers to participate in the Pre-Delegation Testing Pilot. To maximize learning for ICANN and .SE with this limited volume, we anticipate selecting only one (1) applicant per Registry Service Provider (RSP) for the pilot. No preference will be given to any specific RSP during the selection process.
