LOS ANGELES - The Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) voted to reaffirm the "Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data."

The Temporary Specification was originally approved by the Board on 17 May 2018 and reaffirmed on 21 August 2018, in order to establish temporary requirements for how ICANN and its contracted parties will comply with existing ICANN contractual requirements and community-developed policies in relation to the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), according to a press release by the Corporation.

Under the procedures for adopting Temporary Policies outlined in the Registry Agreement and Registrar Accreditation Agreement, the Board must reaffirm the adoption every 90 days, and may continue to do so for no more than a year.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique, so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
