This page lists our Governance Policies and other formal documents, along with some information about the current state of each.
Please take into account that as from 1 April 2018 all our work is streamlined under one banner; InternetNZ. NZRS ceases to exist, and its people and services have been integrated into InternetNZ. The Domain Name Commission has been slimmed down to concentrate on its independent role overseeing rules for the NZ Internet and adjudicating disputes. All of us are still acting for a better world through a better Internet.
This document is current as of June 2017, when it was restructured slightly.
