Proxy Services Framework
Following the 30 day comment period on the proposed Proxy Services framework, Nominet have decided to proceed with a framework for these services.
Confirmed key features of the newly designed framework include:
- Only Accredited Channel Partners are eligible for participation.
- Participating registrars will be required to submit either a suitable Proxy Service Incident Plan (PSIP), or ensure a suitable third-party data escrow scheme is in place.
- For DRS claims, the Proxy Service Provider will have a two working days timeframe in which to supply details of the underlying registrant.
- Proxy Service Providers will be obligated to respond to LEA data requests within a one working day timescale.
- Participating registrars will be subject to an annual compliance audit to ensure underlying data is accurate.
- Marketing must not imply that without proxy services personal data will be published by default.
A summary of the feedback and Nominet response can be found here. A revised version of the registry-registrar agreement has been published and is available here. Applications will be accepted from 3rd December 2018.
