Management Restructure

It was agreed that a Director of Operations, a Director of IT and a Director of Finance would be appointed. These posts would not be legal directors of the company.


The PAB recommendation regarding Local Education Authorities being able to register in the format lea.<area>.sch.uk was accepted. The PAB Chairman's comments regarding legal advice on tag changes and INCOP were noted.


The CoM agreed with the Project Manager and the PAB, that a industry wide Code of Practice with a wide scope would be appropriate and that this should be funded and promoted externally to Nominet UK. The CoM agreed that they would welcome any such initiatives by organisations external to Nominet UK and would carefully consider playing an appropriate role if invited. The CoM also agreed with the recommendation that Nominet improve standards in domain name registration services by ensuring that Tag Holders meet the existing requirements of the Tag Holder Agreement and tasked the Executive with the implementation of this recommendation.
