eco invites interested parties to a public consultation on the GDPR Domain Industry Playbook
Date: December 11, 2017, 10.00 - 17.00 Brussels time (9.00 - 16.00 UTC).
Venue: Representation of Lower Saxony to the European Union, Rue Montoyer 61, B-1000 Bruxelles

eco has commissioned Fieldfisher (Germany) LLP, Hamburg, and Rickert Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH, Bonn, to work on a data model for the domain industry for generic domain names. The paper is currently being written based on consultations with contracted parties, legal assessments, policy work conducted by the ICANN community and the use case matrix published by ICANN based on a public consultation (see https://www.icann.org/news/blog/data-protection-and-privacy-progress-update-and-next-steps).
The proposed data model takes a holistic view at all data elements that contracted parties, i.e. registries and registrars are required to process based on ICANN’s contracts and policies. Further, it covers what data may be collected, transferred or otherwise processed and how data can be disclosed to requesting parties. Thus, it does not only speak to the „Whois“ issue, but to data processing as such.
eco plans to publish the paper for review approximately 5 days before the consultation takes place.
The paper will be presented by Attorneys at Law Oliver Süme and Thomas Rickert and then the participants will be invited to comment and discuss the proposal.
Subsequently, the paper shall be finalized based on the comment received and it shall serve as a proposal to be presented to ICANN so that contracted parties implementing the model will not be sanctioned by ICANN for noncompliance with the existing contracts, see https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/contractual-compliance-statement-2017-11-02-en
