Additional Contact related Requirements for .ASIA Domain Names

12 Jun

Apart from the Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing Contacts, two additional Contacts as explained below need to be associated with a .ASIA domain name:
Operations and Notifications (OPN) Contact (Anchor: OPN)Top

An Operations and Notifications Contact (OPN Contact) is submitted to designate the point of contact to whom documentary evidence requests, auction invitations, and reminders are to be sent.

Updates to the OPN Contact will not be permitted during Sunrise period. The .ASIA Registry does not guarantee that any changes to OPN Contact will be effected in the notification system immediately. If you update the OPN Contact, you must continue to accept and expect notifications being sent to the previous OPN Contact for a reasonable period of time after the submission of the changes.

The OPN Contact must be specified for all Sunrise applications. This Contact is optional for Landrush and Live Registrations.
Charter Eligibility Declaration (CED) Contact (Anchor: CED)Top

Every domain registration application must include at least one Domain Contact that is a Legal entity in the DotAsia Community. The DotAsia Community is defined based on the geographical boundaries described by the ICANN Asia / Australia / Pacific region. 1

The Registrant Contact needs to warrant and represent the Domain Contact to make the Charter Eligibility Declaration (CED), who shall then be referred to as the CED Contact. The CED Contact, along with the Registrant Contact, is jointly responsible and liable for the domain name. In the event of a domain name dispute, both the CED Contact and the Registrant Contact can be named as the responding party to any allegations arisen.

For those entities that do not have a separate Legal personality, such as a partnership in some economies, a natural person (eg., a partner) may be used as one of the Domain Contacts and named as the CED Contact.

The designated CED Contact must provide additional information to make the declaration to the effect that it is a Legal entity within the DotAsia Community. The required information includes:

1. Location or domicile of the Entity (based on the corresponding ISO3166 code)

2. Type of Entity:

a. Corporations or Companies

b. Cooperatives

c. Partnerships or Collectives

d. Government Bodies, States, Sovereigns or Municipalities

e. Political Parties or Trade Unions

f. Trusts, Estates, Associations or Societies

g. Institutions

h. Natural Persons

i. Other

3. Form of Identification:

a. Certificate of Incorporation or equivalent business registration certificate issued by the relevant government registry as confirmation of the due incorporation and valid existence of the company

b. Act, decree or legislation chartering the formation of an entity

c. Societies Registry or equivalent registry for non-corporate entities

d. Political Parties Registry

e. Passport or Citizenship ID

f. Other

4. Identification Number / Code of Reference (e.g. Passport number, Business Certificate number, Act or Legislation number/code, etc.)

5. Other Remarks
