Purpose: In its Draft Report, the Competition, Consumer Trust and Consumer Choice Review Team (CCTRT) assesses the New Generic Top-Level Domain (New gTLD) Program in three areas: competition, consumer trust and consumer choice, as well as the effectiveness of safeguards put in place to mitigate issues arising from the introduction of new gTLDs and the Program's application and evaluation process. The review examines the degree to which the process of implementing the New gTLD Program was successful in producing desired results and achieving the stated objectives. The CCTRT is analyzing both quantitative and qualitative data to produce recommendations for the ICANN Board to consider and adopt. This publicSee public comment in
