Have your say: a better .nz Domain Name Commission

The first independent review of New Zealand’s Domain Name Commission has found the organisation has been effective in its oversight of the .nz domain name industry.

The Domain Name Commission is seeking feedback on that review from today.

"The Commission is pleased the review found no systemic or widespread issues with the way we operate, or with our general approaches to self regulate the .nz domain name market, says Domain Name Commissioner, Brent Carey.

"We are nevertheless committed to continuous improvement to the way we work and there are a number of findings and recommendations for us to reflect upon."

The draft report, outlining the review, has been published and the Domain Name Commission is inviting the community to engage with its content before the independent reviewer, Mr David Pickens, finalises the report.

Giving people an opportunity to have their say on the report will help ensure the Commission is fit for purpose for the years ahead.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Pickens for his comprehensive review that will allow us to strengthen the role of the Commission into the future," says Carey.

Anyone can make a submission. Whether a part of the technical community, the domain name industry, an international counterpart, business owner or member of the public. This is a chance to have your say on how the Commission can best serve the sellers, buyers and service providers in the .nz domain name industry.

Once the consultation period ends, Mr Pickens will create a final report. This report will be published in July.

Submissions can be made via email to consultations@dnc.org.nz. The closing date for submissions is midday Thursday 6 June 2019. For more information, including the review report, go to: dnc.org.nz/independent-review/consultation
