APTLD (Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association) is a
membership-based, non-for-profit organization that serves ccTLD (country-code
Top Level Domain) registries in the Asia Pacific region.

APTLD operates as the forum of information exchange
regarding technological and operational issues of domain name registries in
Asia Pacific region. As an interface to other international Internet
coordinating bodies, APTLD fosters and elevates participation of AP ccTLDs in
these global fora, as well as acts in the best interest of APTLD members in
global Internet policy making process.

As the needs of the APTLD community evolve, its
Transparency and Accountability fundamentals must evolve as well. The new TAFDWG
will develop Transparency and Accountability Framework based on best
international standards and practices.

In pursuing its work, the TAFDWG should produce its
Charter first and, consequently, a draft Transparency and Accountability
Framework, subject to further revision and comments by the APTLD community, and
a subsequent approval by the APTLD Board.

The scope of the TAFDWG is limited to aforementioned
tasks. If authority is needed to change any other APTLD’s framework or policy document,
the TAFDWG may petition the Board at their monthly meeting.

Members of the Working Group will join periodical
calls where relevant matters will be discussed and (if necessary) voted on.
Members are encouraged to collaborate between online meetings on a draft
document posted on Google Docs for their convenience. The periodical meetings
will reference the ongoing changes to the document (if any), so members are
strongly encouraged to stay abreast of the discussion (as well as engage in bilateral
and multilateral exchange of communications). To facilitate their
collaboration, the TAFDWG may also resolve to set up a messenger-based group.

The TAFDWG will be constituted and hold its first
meeting once at least 5 members, ideally representing APTLD’s subregions, have
joined in and continue its operation until the draft  Transparency and Accountability Framework is
made available for the Board’s review.

The TAFDWG operation will be supported and facilitated
by the APTLD staff

To apply for membership in the TAFDWG please send an
email in an arbitrary format to GM at: l.todorov@aptld.org.
