Some may be interested to know that it has been roughly 5 years since
work on creating ADNA (now auDA) began in earnest. The first meeting of
ADNA was in May 1997.

Time flies!

    Subject: Drafting Group for Setting up Australian Domain Name Authority

    As I understand it, the task is:

    To set out the necessary steps for creating a representative industry
    self-regulatory body, provisionally named the Australian Domain Name
    Authority (ADNA). It will be the responsibility of ADNA to determine and
    oversight policies on the administration of Second and Third Level
    Domain Names within the .au name-space. In the development of its
    policies ADNA must carry out public consultation processes, so that its
    final policies will be accepted by the industry and by the relevant
    regulators (ACCC, ACA) as being the proper outcomes of industry

    In particular, the ADNA will have responsibility of determining:
            (1) the hierarchy of 2LDNs under .au
            (2) the rules for selecting (and deselecting) DNAs to administer 3LDNs
            (3) the policies under which 2LDNs must accept or reject 3LDNs.

    [I suggest it would be useful to also assign the ADNA the responsibility
    for producing
            (4) a Code of Practice for DNAs, and
            (5) a Code of Practice for ISPs in registering DNs on behalf of
    their clients.]
