Session Details

The GAC will discuss developments related to WHOIS compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) since the ICANN62 Panama meeting. These include the launch of the Expedited Policy Development Process (EPDP) on gTLD Registration Data, developments related to a possible Unified Access Model to non-public WHOIS Data, and correspondence between ICANN and relevant Data Protection Authorities. It is expected that this session will serve to introduce and structure the GAC's work in Barcelona in relation to the multiple dimensions of this subject matter that has direct Public Policy implications. Since ICANN60, the GAC has issued Advice to the ICANN Board on this matter.
