Revised set of Task Force 3 Survey questions sent to Elisabeth Porteneuve,
the ccTLD liaison to the GNSO Council
and Task Force 3 on behalf of Brian Darville, task force 3 chair.
Final ccTLD Questionnaire
The GNSO's WHOIS Task Force #3 is chartered with reviewing the current
ICANN whois policy regarding the accuracy of collected WHOIS data. Toward
that end, we are interested to know what procedures various ccTLDs employ
relating to the accuracy of collected WHOIS data.
It would be very helpful if the ccTLDs who will be part of your survey could
provide information (including links and copies) concerning the following
points, which are of particular interest:
a) What steps do you currently take to verify the accuracy of collected
b) What if any staff members do you employ who have responsibility for
verifying the accuracy of collected WHOIS data?
c) What if any automated processes do you use or employ to verify the
accuracy of collected WHOIS data?
d) At what stage in the domain name registration process do you verify the
accuracy of the collected WHOIS data?
e) What steps, if any, do you take upon learning that submitted WHOIS data
is inaccurate or false?
f) Do you employ or retain any outside services for the verification of the
accuracy of collected WHOIS data? If so, what is the approximate cost of
such services and how are they priced?
g) Do you have a process in place for receiving reports of inaccurate or
false WHOIS data? If so, what is that process?
h) What laws or regulations does your country have in place, if any,
regarding the accuracy of WHOIS data? Please summarize and provide
citations to any such laws.
