Measures for protection of geographic names in the .politie top-level are being taken for Country and territory names (conform Specification 5 in the Base Agreement).

Registry Operator will exclude all country and territory names from registration on the second level, the only level in which registrations will be offered by Registry Operator, specified in Specification 5 of the Base Agreement:

5.1. the short form (in English) of all country and territory names contained on the ISO 3166- 1 list, as updated from time to time, including the European Union, which is exceptionally reserved on the ISO 3166-1 list, and its scope extended in August 1999 to any application needing to represent the name European Union 〈http:⁄⁄www.iso.org⁄iso⁄support⁄country_codes⁄iso_3166_code_lists⁄iso-3166- 1_decoding_table.htm#EU〉;
5.2. the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names of Countries of the World; and
5.3. the list of United Nations member states in 6 official United Nations languages prepared by the Working Group on Country Names of the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names;.

The names on these lists will be shown in the registries’ Whois with status ‘excluded’.

Registration of these names will be limited during the entire lifetime of the .politie top level domain to registrants who are designated by the government or public authority of the concerned country or territory. Authentication of representation is based on the existing methodology developed for release of country names in the .INFO top-level domain.
A government or public authority wanting to register their country or territory name under .politie has to get an authentication by GAC Secretariat. This authentication and the name of the designated beneficiary need to be transferred to Registry Operator, who will issue an authorisation number to the designated beneficiary in the country concerned. The domain name can be registered through an accredited registrar with the designated beneficiary as the registrant, using the authorisation number.
The registrant of these domain names can only be changed after registration if the new designated registrant also has been authenticated by GAC Secretariat.
