See Schedule A
Eligibility to licence a domain name in any of the open 2LDs can be
demonstrated by reference to one (or more) of the following indicators:
- a decision by a court or other accredited tribunal;
- an Australian Registered Trade Mark, or Trade Mark application;
- proof of identity (eg. Australian passport, Australian drivers' licence);
- an Australian Business Number;
- an Australian Registered Business Name or Company Number;
- any other evidence supported by a statutory declaration and proof of
identity. (see Endnote )
