From 1 April 2018, all the work of InternetNZ and NZRS is being streamlined under one banner; InternetNZ.

NZRS ceases to exist, and its people and services have been integrated into InternetNZ.

The Domain Name Commission has also focused in on its independent role overseeing the .nz domain name space and administering the .nz dispute resolution service.

They now have a smaller Board which means .nz policy development has moved to be the responsibility of InternetNZ. They will set up a new .nz policy committee to decide policy, fees and commercial terms. There is no other change to their role from where it stands today.

The rationale for these changes is to simplify how Internet users work with us, and to improve the effectiveness of our part in governance and management of the Internet.

Details of the changes can be found here:

Everyone in InternetNZ and the Domain Name Commission continues to act for a better world through a better Internet.
