.MTR, the proposed TLD, shall be reserved for exclusive internal use with MTR Corporation Limited. We acknowledge the GAC Principles regarding New gTLDs (http:⁄⁄archive.icann.org⁄en⁄topics⁄new-gtlds⁄gac-principles-regarding-new-gtlds-28mar07-en.pdf) and shall adopt, before .MTR is introduced, appropriate procedures for reserving, at no cost and upon demand of governments, public authorities or IGOs, names with national or geographical significance at the second and other levels from public registration.

The detailed procedures and measures shall be as follows:

All geographic and geopolitical names contained in the ISO 3166-1 list from time to time shall initially be reserved at both the second level and at all other levels from public registrations. All names shall be reserved in English and in all related official languages.

In addition, we shall reserve names of territories, distinct economies, and other geographic and geopolitical names as ICANN may direct from time to time. Such names shall be reserved from public registration during any sunrise period. MTR Corporation Limited shall post and maintain an updated list of all such names on the registry operator’s website, including updates necessary to implement changes at ICANNʹs direction. Upon determination by ICANN of appropriate standards and qualifications for registration following input from interested parties in the Internet community, such names may be approved for registration to the appropriate authoritative body.
