Whois Data Reminder Policy Posted

16 June 2003

Today, ICANN posted the Whois Data Reminder Policy (WDRP). This policy, which was developed as a consensus policy by ICANN's Generic Names Supporting Organization and adopted by the ICANN Board on 27 March 2003, calls for ICANN-accredited registrars to provide domain-name registrants with an annual listing of their Whois data and to remind registrants of the need to correct inaccurate or out-of-date information. Registrars have agreed in their accreditation agreements with ICANN to comply with the WDRP.
