New Reports: Twelve-Month Trends

View the New Twelve-Month Trends Report Page

Currently, the reports appearing on the Contractual Compliance Monthly Dashboard contain a variety of metrics reflecting activity for each specific month. These metrics describe, for example, volume of complaints received across the several types through which ICANN Contractual Compliance enforces the obligations in ICANN policies and agreements. The Monthly Dashboard also includes complaint-specific details such as those related to the Temporary Specification for generic top-level domain (gTLD) Registration Data requirements.

A new series of summary reports is being added with more granular data on the complaints received, the obligations enforced and the process through which these obligations are being enforced. To illustrate historical trends over time, these reports are published on a twelve-month rolling basis, beginning from January 2021 to December 2021, and will be updated monthly.
