Dear all,


We are in the process of transferring the IANA domains to the Trust

from ICANN using CSC as the registrar.


The agreement with CSC requires the incorporation of the License

Agreements' Exhibit E Domain Name Registrar Requirements.  Exhibit E

is the same in each of the three license agreements between the

Trust and ICANN.


The implementation of the requirements needed additional details

than in the current Exhibit E. These details have been worked out

with ICANN and approved by the IETF Trust for review and acceptance

by the CCG.


Specifically, under the circumstance where the Administrative and

Technical Contacts must approve the change to the Technical Contact

the Registrar must provide notice of a receipt of a request to each to

change the Technical Contact.


Additionally, under the circumstance where the Registrant can

override the need for the other parties to approve a change to the

Technical Contact, the Registrant must provide documentation that

notice of the change was provided to both the Administrative and

Technical Contacts and that no response was received after a period

of no less than ten business days.


These conditions are also incorporated under the circumstances where

the domain is set to prohibit registrar transfers and to prohibit



A markup of the attached License Agreement Exhibit E reflects those

proposed details.


CSC has stated that it can implement the proposed changes.


Section 3.2 e (ii) of the Community Agreement provides that each

Operational Community accepts the "Initial License Agreement", which

was done.


The Trust, together with the current Operator, propose changes to the

License Agreement and requests that the Operational Communities

accept these changes.


Following acceptance of these proposed changes it is believed the

next steps to be:


  a.  Community Review

  b.  Trust and ICANN execute amendments to the three License Agreements

  c.  Incorporate the changes in CSC Agreement Schedule A

            (Schedule A is the same as Exhibit E of the License Agreements)

  d.  Trust puts Schedule A of the CSC Agreement out for Community Review 

  e.  Community Review

  f.  Trust executes CSC Agreement

  g.  CSC Test of conformance to the requirements 

  h.  All IANA domains transferred upon successful test


Your feedback by 20 March 2017 on the proposed amendments to the

License Agreements and the next steps are appreciated.


Best regards, 


Tobias Gondrom
