Comment on the new sections.

The Registration Directory Service (RDS-WHOIS2) Review Team published its draft report and recommendations for public comment on 4 September 2018. The Registration Directory Service Review Team assesses the extent to which prior Directory Service Review recommendations have been implemented and implementation has resulted in the intended effect. The review team also assesses the effectiveness of the then current gTLD registry directory service and whether its implementation meets the legitimate needs of law enforcement, promotes consumer trust and safeguards registrant data. Informed by ICANN organization briefings and available documentation, the review team has formulated draft recommendations based on a factual analysis. This public comment proceeding aims at gathering community input on the RDS-WHOIS2 Review Team’s proposed draft findings and recommendations.

The RDS-WHOIS2 Review Team aims to publish its final report in Q1 2019.
