Addendum to the upcoming regulation change

Following the announcement of .IS domain rules to change 29th October, the ISNIC Board has made an additional modification.

The modification will remove fully the requirement for an Icelandic agent, ID number or a registered agent. However, we expect domestic registrations to include ID numbers for legal reasons and tax purposes.

The purpose of agents is still valid, however the reason for agents, overseas, is reduced and we point to the ISP application here on our website - which will be more beneficial for resellers. Local agents will still be available to foreign companies who require formal presence, and for issues regarding protection of trademarks, logos etc.

In order to maintain a accurate and trustworthy database, some additional amendments are made regarding the cancellation of domains. They will be available shortly and will be introduced on the ISNIC website.
