HKIAC places great emphasis in providing speedy and cost effective Domain Name Dispute Resolution (DNDR) services.

To provide a dedicated platform in Asia for resolving generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) disputes under ICANN’s policies, HKIAC and CIETAC co-founded the Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre (ADNDRC) in Hong Kong in 2002.  Since then, HKIAC has been operating as the Hong Kong Office of ADNDRC and CIETAC as the Beijing Office. 

The ADNDRC now has offices in Seoul and Kuala Lumpur, operating through the Korea Internet Address Dispute Resolution Committee and Asian International Arbitration Centre.

DNDR services offered by HKIAC / the ADNDRC Hong Kong Office cover domain names registered under all gTLDs (including new gTLDs) and a wide range of country code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs).

Applicable gTLDs domains include: .asia, .biz, .com, , .info, .jobs, .name, .net, .org, .pro, .tel, and .xxx. Applicable ccTLDs (40+ countries) include “.hk” and  “.香港” under the Hong Kong Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy  and“.cn” and “.中国”under the China ccTLD Dispute Resolution Policy, as well as ccTLDs for 40+ other countries  including British Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Lao and Pakistan.

DNDR proceedings administered by HKIAC are conducted via an Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform and by exchange of submissions in electronic format. As such, proceedings can normally be completed swiftly within 60 days or even in a shorter period of time.
