The Board and Executive of auDA today welcomed the announcement of a Federal Government review into the .au domain.

The Department of Communications and the Arts will invite submissions on frameworks for managing .au, how to ensure government and community expectations inform decision-making, and strategies to address the ongoing security and stability of the domain.

Founded in 2000, auDA is an industry self-regulatory body and policy authority for the .au domain space.

auDA Interim Board Chair Erhan Karabardak welcomed the review, which will complement internal governance and strategy projects currently underway.

“The .au domain is one of the most trusted domain zones in the world and we look forward to working with the government and Australian internet community to maintain and enhance that position,” Mr Karabardak said.

“auDA’s multi-stakeholder work on the Registry Transformation Project and Policy Review Panel will continue throughout the review.

“It is critical that we have the best possible model for managing the domain, and that our risk and mitigation strategies are among the best in the world.”
