    ICANN makes progress on data retention waivers for domain name registrars


    ICANN published today the first preliminary determination on a registrar’s request to change the data retention requirements in the 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA).

    The 2013 RAA requires registrars to keep certain information about their customers even after the customer takes its business elsewhere or lets a domain name expire. Some registrars balked at this requirement, arguing it would violate their countries’ data retention laws.

    ICANN decided to allow registrars to petition to change the data retention requirements if they believed they violated local law.

    A European Union data protection body has told ICANN for a second time — after being snubbed the first — that parts of the 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement are in conflict with EU law.The Article 29 Data Protection Working Party, which is made up of the data protection commissioners in all 28 EU member states, reiterated its claim in a letter sent earlier this month.
