Have Comreg Forgotten About The IEDR?

Remember Comreg?

Remember the famous IEDR report?

It’s now the 18th of December, which means that civil servants will soon be shutting up shop until the New Year.

And still we have no inkling as to the outcome of Comreg’s investigations into the IE Domain Registry, the company currently charged with managing the Irish ccTLD.

Over 12 months ago the external consultants presented their report to Comreg and in turn this was shared with the registry. Unfortunately, citing concerns with privacy, security and business information, Comreg did not deem it necessary to share that report either with the public or stakeholders.

Months passed and then in June of this year Comreg finally opened up their consultation with the public.

That consultation period closed back at the beginning of August, but they are yet to actually publish anything.

How long does it take to put together a report?

Until such time as Comreg actually publish their report both the IEDR and stakeholders alike are going to be left in Limbo.

    I have no idea what they’re up to, but I’d rather see them take their time and do it right rather than getting into a lot of legal trouble over it.

    That’s easy for you to say. You’re not affected by the delays

    Fair enough. You are right, it does seem a bit long at this stage. Does it make a difference in practice?

    I have concerns myself with the legitimacy of domain names issued since the Act was commenced, but this doesn’t have much of a practical implication.

    The IEDR are left in limbo, which means that they can’t move forward with a lot of things that are needed, such as introducing proper registrar contracts etc., etc.,

    Ultimately the end user is the one that suffers and all because Comreg are so slow.

    Getting governments involved with domains is a bad idea ..

    Is this the view of the IEDR now? I thought they were proceeding with everything. This seems like a change to me.
