The ALAC has completed its first “operations” activity as requested by the Board. The members of the At-Large New gTLD Review Group (RG) created a process, approved by the ALAC, to vet objections and draft the objection statements. This process sought input from the At-Large community, at the Regional At-Large Organization and ALAC levels, in accordance with requirements set out in the Applicant Guidebook.
On 13 March, the ALAC filed three objections regarding applications for .health.
The objections were filed according to the New gTLD Dispute Resolution Procedure from ICANN administered by the ICC International Centre for Expertise.
There are four grounds for filing objections to New gTLD Applications, but the ALAC has standing to object on only two grounds: Limited Public Interest Objection grounds and Community Objection grounds.
