Correspondences with ICANN and notices of breach

ICANN is an organization which deals with issues through correspondences. For a better transparency, these are made public.

The ICANN correspondence page lists all letters sent to the organization. Senders give a name, a title and an affiliation. Such affiliation can be the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), one of its sub organizations or any other: a new gTLD project or an organization affiliated to it. Below is the list of affiliations for the month of July 2012:
  • The Association of National Advertisers (ANA);
  • ICANN Board;
  • The DotGreen Community, Inc.;
  • Foundation for Assistance for Internet Technologies and Infrastructure Development (FAITID);
  • United Nations;
  • SSAC (Security and Stability Advisory Committee).
Then, the type of issue is mentioned. Most of the time it is a "notice of breach". Here is a list for the month of July:
  • Notice of Breach;
  • Extension of the Application Public Comment Window for New gTLDs;
  • Processing of Applications for New Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs);
  • The New gTLD Program and the Public Interest;
  • Support of the SSAC Letter to ICANN Board;
  • IGO Domain Names;
  • New Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) Process.
You can write to ICANN for any issue transmitting your document via electronic mail (email), facsimile (fax) and postal mail.
