EURid, the registry for .eu, has drawn up a Code of Conduct
for its accredited registrars
The Code is to be administered by a board of representatives called
»Council of Conduct«, which is being elected from within the
.eu registrar community.
Goals of the Code of Conduct
While all accredited registrars must meet the conditions laid out in the
.eu registrar agreement, those registrars who elect to subscribe
to the Code of Conduct will offer a superior level of service.
The values stated of the Code of Conduct
have always been represented by Knipp as a matter of course.
The objective in setting up this code is to award .eu registrars offering
outstanding services with a quality label and to help consumers to make an
informed choice for their registrations.
You can identify subscribing registrars by the round .eu Code of Conduct logo
that you can see on the left border of this page.
The role of Knipp
Knipp Medien und Kommunikation GmbH was one of the first subscribers to the
Code of Conduct. For Knipp, the rules settled in the charter are the natural
basis for the trustful relationship to its customers.
Together with a number of other experienced and merited members of the
international domain world, Elmar Knipp, one of the Chief Executive Officers
of Knipp, was elected to be in the committee that finalized and officially set
into force the Code's charter. Elmar Knipp is also a member of the extended
Council of Conduct that was elected during the first Code of Conduct meeting
in Lisbon on March 29th, 2007.
The supervisory body
The function of the Council of Conduct is to ensure that the rules of the
Code are being obeyed. The Council is responsible for approving
candidates that want to newly subscribe to the Code of Conduct, and for
ruling on complaints filed against subscribing registrars according to
the prescribed rules and procedures.
