ICANN : WEBINAR: WHOIS Accuracy Reporting System Phase 2 Report

ICANN published the WHOIS Accuracy Reporting System (ARS) Phase 2 report on 23 December 2015. This webinar, scheduled for 12 January 2016, will focus on the findings of the report and its implications for the community.

Participants will learn about the results of the Phase 2 study, which acts as a follow-on to the Phase 1 report [PDF, 1.4 MB] published in August 2015. In Phase 2, ICANN measured both the overall syntax (formatting) and operability accuracy of a sample of WHOIS records in gTLDs. The results include comparisons based on Registrar Accreditation Agreements (2009 RAA v. 2013 RAA), top-level domain types (e.g., new or “legacy” gTLDs) and across ICANN regions.

The WHOIS Accuracy Reporting System is an ICANN initiative born out of recommendations from the 2012 WHOIS Review Team to improve oversight of the WHOIS Program. ICANN committed to proactively identifying potentially inaccurate gTLD WHOIS contact data and forwarding potentially inaccurate records to gTLD registrars for investigation and follow up. The ARS reports provide information on the leading types of nonconformances (based on the applicable Registrar Accreditation Agreement), which ICANN’s Compliance team uses for follow-up with registrars regarding potentially inaccurate records.
