As part of this process, Nominet is seeking views from members on the possible introduction of a Members’ Code that will clarify the process in the unlikely event that a member’s conduct brings the organisation and its members into disrepute.
Nominet says such issues with their membership are extremely rare but the introduction of a Members’ Code should offer reassuring clarity for all members. Nominet also views this as important to help it maintain the trust and respect Nominet and the domain name industry has earned with its stakeholders.
Chair of the Nominet Board, Baroness Rennie Fritchie DBE, explains more about the consultation in this video.
A draft version of the code, and the accompanying amendment to the voting rights by-law, have now been published for comment on the Nominet website.
Members are invited to submit their views or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 23rd February.
