auDA Releases Transfers (Change of Registrar of Record) Policy (2013-02)

31 05 2013

Following a detailed industry panel review, auDA has implemented the recommendations of the 2012 Industry Advisory Panel by publishing Transfers (Change of Registrar of Record) Policy (2013-02).

The policy regulates transfers between auDA Accredited Registrars, and now accommodates bulk transfers between registrars, in order to promote competition.

The new clause 7 of the policy states in part:

7.1 Bulk transfers by registrars are only permitted:

a) for a minimum of 1,000 domain names at a time; and

b) with the prior written consent of auDA.

Circumstances in which auDA may consent to a bulk transfer include where the gaining registrar has acquired the losing registrar’s business, or where the gaining registrar and the losing registrar are related entities.

The amended policy comes into force today, 31 May 2013.
