  8. Registry selection process • basic concept • fair and transparent • private sector initiative with necessary cooperation with government • selection method? • selection by third-party experts? • consensus among stakeholders? • governmental committee decides? • who prepares for the content of the RFP? • working group with experts from broad sectors ? • working group with experts from Internet-related organizations ? • the government ? • government will respect the result of the selection process

  9. Registry selection criteria • domestic organization? • registry other than .JP registry (JPRS) preferred? • organization with criminal records excluded? • operation capability • technical capability • organizational management stability • sound business plan • (financial) transparency / accountability • law compliance • responsiveness to registrars/customers • contribution to international community • contribution to local community • data escrow • DRP?
