.Global Restricted Claims Period (RCP)

Restricted Claims Period (RCP)

Why do we need to use RCP?

The RPM requirements state that if a label has been withheld from registration and is then released/eligible for registration, the label MUST be subject for a Claims Service for a period of 90 days.

On May 1, 2017, we will move labels from our reserved name space into EPP Premium or into GA.  Around 200 of these labels will need to go through a Claims Service, hence these labels must go through a Restricted Claims Period (RCP).

What is RCP?

RCP is an Afilias restricted launch phase that allows Claims notification to be made on labels in the TMCH.
