The Applicant is an intergovernmental organization with 20 Member States (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United- Kingdom), one Candidate State for accession (Romania) and two Associate Members in the pre-stage to Membership (Israel and Serbia). Moreover, scientists worldwide come to CERN for their research. Therefore. the Applicant may indeed seek to register domain names that contain geographic names at a second or third level (e.g. germany.member.cern or japan.observer.cern).
However, the registration of such domain names will be subject to the following conditions:
(i) domain names that contain geographic names will be exclusively registered in the name of the Applicant ⁄ Registry Operator, and not in the name of a third party that is not controlled by the Applicant ⁄ Registry Operator, unless agreed upon otherwise with the authority competent for giving its consent in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement;
(ii) the Applicant will obtain prior consent from the relevant authorities in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement, before registering, delegating and using these domain names.
The registration, delegation and use of domain names corresponding to geographic names will at all times be done in the best interest of the Applicant and its mission of scientific research, information, education and outreach.
