.org Reassignment: Applications Received

On 31 December 2002, the current registry agreement for the operation of the .org top-level domain (TLD) expires. Accordingly, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is in the process of reviewing proposals from applicants seeking to become the successor operator for .org. As of the application deadline (5:00 pm California time on Tuesday, 18 June 2002), eleven applications to become the successor operator of the .org TLD were received by ICANN. They are listed below.

These applications have not yet been verified to be complete in all respects or to be in proper form. (There may be missing parts of the application, omitted attachments, no or an inadequate application fee, a transmittal not in the specified form, a lack of required signatures, etc.) Requests for confidential treatment of material submitted have not yet been evaluated.

The procedure that will be used by ICANN to review these materials is described in the "Application Instructions for the .org Top-Level Domain." The applications will be evaluated according to the "Criteria for Assessing Proposals".
