The GDD General Operations Handbook: Brand Registry Operations is prepared by ICANN’s Global Domain Division in conjunction with the BRG.

The document looks at:

  • Interfaces with registry operators—the GDD, ICANN contractual compliance & consumer safeguards and registry organisations.
  • Ongoing Registry Operations—commonly provided registry services
  • Useful tools, registry resources and additional information
  • Registry operator obligations

Please note that the latest version of the handbook has been adapted by the GDD to incorporate all types of registry models, leveraging what was originally prepared for dotBrand registry operators.
