Set forth below is a revised proposal prepared by representatives of the IPC after a telephone conference yesterday between Bruce Tonkin, Ross Rader, Steve Metalitz (IPC), Ryan Lehning (IPC) and myself. As I understand it, Ross may be preparing a revision to paragraph C in the following proposal. We will discuss this proposal on today's call.
Here is the revised proposal:
I. Steps to Verify & Correct Inaccuracy in Response to a Complaint
A. 1. If a registrar receives a complaint about the accuracy of
registrant data through the Whois Data Problems Reporting System, that
registrar shall take reasonable steps to verify the accuracy of that
data by contacting the registrant through at least two of the following
four methods: 1) email; 2) telephone number; 3) facsimile number; or 4)
2. If one method fails (e.g., email bounce-back;
telephone or fax disconnected; or a return to sender message), the
domain name may be placed immediately on hold; or, another method shall
be used. If both of the two pursued methods fail, registrar shall place
the domain name on hold. If a pursued method does not fail, registrar
must allow the registrant 15 days to respond with accurate information.
If it is apparent at any point in the process that a registrant has
willfully provided inaccurate contact data, a registrar may immediately
place the domain name on hold without first attempting to (further)
contact the registrant.
B. If a registrant responds to registrar notifications of inaccuracy
within the 15 day time limit, providing updated data, registrar shall
verify the accuracy of at least one of the following three updated data
elements: 1) email; 2) telephone number; or 3) facsimile number.
Verification may consist of the registrar using the updated data to
effectively contact the registrant, confirming the registrant's
correction of its contact data or by requesting that the registrant
provide the registrar with "proof of authenticity" of the contact
information (e.g., a photocopy of a driver's license or a utility bill).
If one element remains inaccurate, registrar may place the domain name
on hold. If one element is accurate, registrar shall verify the second
element. If both elements remain inaccurate, registrar may place the
domain name on hold or verify the third element. If the contact
information remains inaccurate or unverified, the registrar shall place
the domain name on hold.
C. Registrars shall make their customers aware of the Whois Data
Problems Reporting System as the means for bringing complaints with
respect to Whois data. [Language to be proposed by Ross Rader for
publicizing the WDPRS in advance of its use as the sole avenue for
making complaints about Whois data].
