What is adjudication?

A fast track dispute resolution process, usually completed "on the papers" without a hearing or oral evidence.

Domain Name Disputes

The auDRP (.au Dispute Resolution Policy) was adopted by the auDA Board on the 13 August 2001.

The purpose of the auDRP is to provide a less expensive, faster alternative to litigation for the resolution of disputes between the registrant of a .au domain name and a party with competing rights to the domain name.

There are a number of independent providers that assist in the administrative proceedings in accordance with the auDRP, including the Resolution Institute.

Further information about the auDRP can be obtained from the Australian Domain Administrator (auDA) website >>.

Rowena McNally is an accredited Domain Name Dispute Adjudicator with IAMA and LEADR (now Resolution Institute).
