ICANN Formalizes Relationship with ccTLD Manager for Finland

December 15, 2006 -

ICANN has announced today that it has signed an exchange of letters with the country code top level domain (ccTLD) manager for .fi--Finland, the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority.

The Accountability Framework program provides two mechanisms by which ccTLD managers can formalise their relationship with ICANN. The first is an Accountability Framework document that sets out the obligations of a ccTLD manager and ICANN. It also covers dispute resolution and termination and is designed for ccTLD managers requiring a formal document with ICANN.

The second mechanism is an exchange of letters between ICANN and the ccTLD manager designed for those for whom a simple statement of commitment is more appropriate.

Signed accountability framework and exchange of letters documents can be found at https://www.icann.org/cctlds/agreements.html.
