LOS ANGELES - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced in a press release the publication of additional second-level reference Label Generation Rules (LGRs).

Second-level reference Label Generation Rules are published to improve the transparency and consistency of the Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) table review process that facilitates the registry operations of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs). The reference IDN tables are based on the Guidelines for Developing Reference Label Generation Rules (LGRs), which were finalized after community review. These reference LGRs will be used in reviewing IDN tables submitted by the gTLD registries, e.g., through the Registry Service Evaluation Policy (RSEP) process.

Additional reference LGRs have been developed based on the detailed analysis and finalized solutions completed by the script community for the Root Zone Label Generation Rules (RZ-LGRs). Seventeen second-level reference LGRs have been finalized and released after Public Comment proceedings, including the Bangla, Devanagari, Ethiopic, Georgian, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Kannada, Khmer, Lao, Malayalam, Oriya, Tamil, and Telugu script-based LGRs, and the Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, and Thai language-based LGRs.

A total of 30 language-based reference LGRs and 13 script-based reference LGRs have been published. The remaining languages and scripts will be included in future releases as relevant community input becomes available.
