Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy

Type of Instrument
Other Instruments

The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the UDRP Policy) sets out the legal framework for the resolution of disputes between a domain name registrant and a third party over the abusive registration and use of an Internet domain name - in the generic top level domains (gTLDs), and those country code top level domains (ccTLDs) that have adopted the UDRP Policy on a voluntary basis.

In 1999, the ICANN Board adopted a set of Rules for UDRP, setting out the procedures and requirements for the dispute resolution administrative procedure. The procedure is administered by the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center as the dispute resolution service provider accredited by ICANN.
