On 8 May 2007, the ALAC Liaison to the GNSO formally notified the Staff of ICANN that ALAC had resolved to request an Issues Report on the practice known as "Domain Tasting".
The ability to request an Issues Report is enshrined in the Bylaws of ICANN, in Annex B [insert hyperlink on phrase "Annex B" to http://www.icann.org/en/general/bylaws.htm#AnnexB]. This request marks the first occasion that an Issues Report has been requested by any Advisory Committee in ICANN.
The request was copied to the GNSO Council list and may be reviewed at http://gnso.icann.org/mailing-lists/archives/council/msg03474.html. The Request of the ALAC is attached to this announcement.
