    "Clarification: .au direct registration requirements
    In his interview with Radio National on Monday 29 Jan, Policy Review Panel Chair John Swinson noted that one proposal for direct registration was that there would be no eligibility rules and that anybody could register .au. This is incorrect, and the proposal is to remove allocation rules, which means an eligible registrant could register any domain name. "

    Registrant policy discussion paper
    auDA’s Policy Review Panel has released its discussion paper on the registrant policy.

    You can download the paper here: Registrant Policy Issues Paper
    https://www.lists.auda.org.au/lists/lt.php?id=e0sBCAZEBlEEGVMNUQ


    The paper looks at reforms to the .au DNS and the opening of .au namespace, rules around domain names in the new and existing 2LD namespaces, domain name licence conditions, how and what names get reserved or withheld, and when domain names should be suspended or cancelled.

    The deadline for submissions on the issues paper is 5pm on Sunday 4 March, 2018. Details can be found at the link above. Make sure you have your say.

    Public policy forums 2018
    To support the release of the Policy Review Panel discussion paper, and to promote discussion on a range of other auDA initiatives and policies, we’re hosting a series of public forums around Australia throughout February. We strongly encourage all members to attend and contribute. It's a great chance to have your say directly to the Policy Review Panel.

    The events are free, but you’ll need to register to attend via the Eventbrite links below:
    • Perth: Mon 5 Feb, Four Points by Sheraton
    If you can’t make it to the events, there will be further opportunities to have your say on these important policy issues.

    Registry transformation project update
    auDA’s .au Relationship Manager Peter Mason and Afilias’ Australian Country Manager John Kane have been meeting with registrars across Australia to get their input on the transition plan to ensure it meets the needs of all stakeholders.

    How the transition between registry operators happens is key to the success of the project. We’ve been working closely with both Neustar Asia Pacific and Afilias Australia to ensure a safe and efficient transition.

    We were happy to hear registrars share our confidence in Afilias Australia's approach to this project which draws on their substantial experience seamlessly transitioning numerous other top level domains.

    You can read Afilias Australia’s thoughts on the project over on their newly-launched .au Transformation Blog.

    It's up there with the infamous one question survey.

    It gets a mention in the member update but what about on the ABC?

    It's hard to have confidence in the panel's finding when the Chair can't even get this salient point right in the national media.
