European Commission calls for public input on the revision of .eu regulations

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the evaluation and revision of the Regulations for the .eu, the country code top-level domain (TLD) for the European Union: Regulation 733/2002 establishing the .eu TLD, and Regulation 874/2004 setting the rules for how the .eu is managed. The consultation, open until August 2017, is mainly aimed at gathering input for the evaluation, asessing the .eu regulatory framework against the evaluation criteria: Effectiveness: have the objectives been met? Efficiency: were the costs involved reasonable? Coherence: does the policy complement other actions or are there contradictions? Relevance: is EU action still necessary? EU added-value: can similar changes have been achieved at national/regional level, or did EU action clearly provide added-value?
