WellPoint Inc. is committed to running .caremore in compliance with applicable laws, consensus policies, best practice guidelines, RFCs and the Specifications of the Registry Agreement. In accordance with GAC advice and Specification 5, WellPoint will block from initial registration (at no charge) country and territory names contained in the following lists:
The short form (in English) of country and territory names contained on the ISO 3166-1 list, as updated from time to time, including the European Union; and
The United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names of Countries of the World; and
The list of United Nations member states in 6 official United Nations languages prepared by the Working Group on Country Names of the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names.

The process for reserving these names, and hence blocking them from registration, will be agreed with our technical service provider, Neustar, who have indicated their ability and willingness to comply with GAC requirements.

We envisage that over time, there will be demand from brand TLDs leading to the development of a standardised process for requesting GAC review and ICANN approval for the release of country and territory names for registration by the Registry Operator when the registry is a single entity registry. When such a process is in place, WellPoint expects to apply for the release of country and territory names within .caremore.
