Previously AFNIC consultative committee meetings were held over two days, with user members meeting on day 1 and member Registrars the following day. Consultative Committee meetings are now held on one day, with discussions and debates organised in the afternoon between the two types of members.
The Consultative Committee meeting held on 4 March provided an opportunity to discuss the projects related to:
new services i.e. multi-year registration, promotional tariff offers, offsetting maintenance billing, scheduling the closure of e-mail / web services, and scheduling the EPP switchover
registry policy i.e. organising workshops on registry policies, opening to IDNs, and the French government bill on the new section L45 of the Postal and Electronic Communications Code further to the decision of the Constitutional Council
The discussions in the Consultative Committee meeting will serve as input for the next AFNIC Board meeting to be held on April 8.
