auDA reviewing WHOIS Policy, open for public consultation
18 November 2013
auDA is currently reviewing the WHOIS Policy (2010-06) and has released an Issues Paper for public comment.
WHOIS is the service that allows people to look up certain details in relation to a registered domain name. The WHOIS service discloses only a subset of the data held in the registry database. auDA does not currently provide access to other types of registry data, other than to law enforcement bodies.
This review covers the following separate but related questions:
1. Should there be any changes to auDA's WHOIS Policy covering the collection, disclosure and use of WHOIS data for .au domain names?
2. Should access to .au domain name data (other than via WHOIS) be opened up?
The closing date for submissions is Friday 31 January 2014.
