Hi team,

As an update, Margie, Brian, and I worked on a compromise for the Rec 7 language on Requestor Purposes. We agreed on the following edit to 7.1(a):


Requestors MUST submit data disclosure requests for specific purposes such as but not limited to: but not limited to: (i) criminal law enforcement, national or public security, (ii) non law enforcement investigations and civil claims, including, intellectual property infringement and UDRP and URS claims, (iii) consumer protection, abuse prevention, and network security, and (iv) obligations applicable to regulated entities.[1] Requestors MAY also submit data verification requests on the basis of Registered Name Holder (RNH) consent that has been obtained by the Requestor (and is at the sole responsibility of that Requestor), for example to validate the RNH's claim of ownership of a domain name registration, or contract with the Requestor.

(Footnote below)
1  For example, the  EU Directive on security of network and information systems (known as the NIS Directive) imposes specific obligations on Digital Service Providers and Operators of Essential Services.

With these changes this is no longer a CLW item for the RySG. Let us know if this new language causes any concern for other groups.
