Per Section 3.1 of the Applicant Guidebook, relevant applicants have 21 calendar days from this publication date to submit a response to the ICANN Board. Due to the upcoming holidays in many parts of the world, we have extended the response deadline by several days. Applicants subject to the advice will be notified directly by the New gTLD Customer Service Center and will receive instructions for submitting a response. To be considered by the ICANN Board, applicant responses should be submitted to the Customer Service Center no later than 23:59:59 UTC on 6 January 2013. ICANN will publish applicant responses and provide them to the Board.
