The Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) is Nominet’s mediation based process for resolving disputes between parties over the registration or use of .UK domain names.
While the DRS has a proven track record of success, its governing procedures had not been reviewed since 2008 and for historic reasons were set out in two separate documents leaving scope for unnecessary duplication and complexity.
We, therefore, conducted a review of the DRS Policy and Procedure documents during 2015 and in February 2016 we proposed a number of changes. The proposed changes consolidated the previous separate policy and procedure documents into a new single policy document and made a number of additional updates including:
A comment period for stakeholders’ views on the proposed changes was opened on Wednesday 10 February 2016 and closed at 5pm on Thursday 24 March 2016. We would like to thank all stakeholders who provided feedback.
We are now considering all feedback received and will announce how we intend to proceed in due course. Where the respondent has given permission, written responses will be published in full on our website along with confirmation of our decision on how to proceed.
