Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
I INTRODUCTORY PROVISIONS – THE INTERNET DOMAINS AND THE TOP-LEVEL “HR” DOMAIN Article 2 Individual parts of the global information space, individual computers or individual persons are identified in the Internet by their names (e.g. URL – Uniform Resource Locator) or electronic address (e.g. e-mail address), and the most important part of every such name or address is always the Internet domain. All countries, networks and individuals linked to the Internet, including CARNet by means of these Regulations, start from the principles and authorities related to the organisation of the Internet domain system (DNS - Domain Name System), which are based primarily on the following international (Internet) documents: RFC 1591: Domain Name System Structure and Delegation (URL: ftp://ftp.carnet.hr/pub/Internet/rfc/rfc1591.txt ); Bylaws for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) (URL: http://www.icann.org/general/bylaws.htm ); IANA / ICANN TLD Delegation Practices Document - ICP-1 (URL: http://www.iana.org/cctld/icp1.htm or http://www.icann.org/icp/icp-1.htm ). Article 3 The Internet domains are organised hierarchically. Within a certain domain, subdomains are registered and activated, i.e. lower level domains. The domains of the top (first) level are called top-level domains (TLD). Top-level domains can be divided into three basic groups. The majority of top-level domains are the so-called national domains (ccTLD - country code domains, e.g. "us", "si", "de", "hr"), assigned to be managed by concrete institutions within a given country, with the aim of making these institutions responsible for the organisation and management of the national domain Internet space. On the day these Regulations are issued, there is only a minor number of the so-called generic top-level domains (gTLD - generic domains), i.e. domains of international (geographically global) type, e.g. “com” or “org” or top-level domains, historically related to big national systems in the United States of America, e.g. “edu” or “gov”. Article 4 HR domain is the national domain of the Republic of Croatia and it is the basic element of the national wealth and sovereignty of the Republic of Croatia: it is the basis of her identity in the virtual world and the starting point of structuring, organising and presentating information in the information space of the Republic of Croatia (RH) on the Internet. Article 5 The basic right and need of every legal and natural person is the presence and subsistence in the virtual world (cyberworld). This rights, needs and responsibilities cannot be accomplished without the Internet domain. The right to use one’s own domain is one of the fundamental rights of legal and natural persons.

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Article 6 Managing HR domain, as an element of national wealth, as well as its use, represent high level of responsibility and respect of interests of all the interested parties. Here, the interest of a community, if clearly defined and accepted, has the advantage over the individual interests of legal or natural persons. In this sense, these Regulations determine the special rights of the government or local authorities in the Republic of Croatia, related first of all to the registration of the so-called generic domains, e.g. domains with names denoting fields of human activities or geographic facilities in Croatia. II TYPES OF DOMAINS WITHIN HR DOMAIN This section defines the six types of subdomains of the HR domain (further in the text domain), registered according to the provisions of these Regulations. HR-P domains - domains for virtual identity of legal persons; HR-F domains - domains for virtual identity of natural persons; HR-D domains - domains for virtual identity of private businesses of natural persons; HR-T domains - domains for market demands and other additional demands of legal and natural persons; HR-V domains - domains important for RH and the RH information space; HR-I domains - domains for improvement of RH information space. Article 7 The aim of HR-P domain is to create the virtual identity of a legal person (defined in more detail in Article 21 of these Regulations), registered in the Republic of Croatia. Virtual identity of a legal person, which is realised through HR-P domain, has to be unambiguously related to the actual (physical) identity and registered activity of the given legal person. HR-P domain is a secondary domain within HR domain, i.e. domain at the level immediately below the HR domain level. Legal person has the right to register one HR-P domain. Article 8 The aim of HR-F domain is to create the virtual identity of a natural person (defined in more detail in Article 22 of these Regulations). Virtual identity of a natural person, accomplished through HR-F domain, must be unambiguously related to the actual (physical) identity of the natural person, and the domain is used to fulfil personal needs of the natural person. HR-F domain is opened as a subdomain within the iz.hr domain. The domain of the same name is automatically opened also within the secondary domains from.hr and name.hr. The natural person, citizen of RH, has the right to register one HR-F domain. Article 9 The aim of HR-D domain is to create the virtual identity of a private activity (defined in more detail in Article 23 of these Regulations), registered in RH, performed by a natural person.
Page 3 / 29 ver.2.2/19.01.2002.
Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Virtual identity of the private activity, realised through HR-D domain, must be unambiguously related to the actual (natural) identity and the registered private activity. HR-D domain is a secondary domain within HR domain, i.e. the domain at the level immediately below the HR domain level. Natural person performing the private activity from Item 1 of this Article, has the right to register one HR-D domain. Article 10 The aim of HR-T domain is to create and enable virtual space for market demands, i.e. meeting the market and other additional demands of legal and natural persons. HR-T domain is opened as a subdomain within the com.hr domain. Every legal or natural person, having physical address (residence) in RH (according to Article 24 of these Regulations) can register a limitless number of HR-T domains. Article 11 HR-V domains are domains of special significance for RH and the RH information space, i.e. domains which have or may have special place in the organisation of the RH information space. The aim of HR-V domain is to provide high-quality organisation and presentation of information in the respective field of domain registration. In principle, these are the domains whose names equal or contain a name or an abbreviated name: of geographical facilities on the RH territory, such as the names of counties, regions, areas and cities (e.g. Croatia, Slavonia, Hvar, Varaždin etc.); of certain fields of human activities, which have their respective authorised managerial, professional or expert bodies at the government level (e.g. culture, sport, economy, soccer, theatres, museums, etc.); of natural, historical, cultural, scientific or other intellectual heritage, resources, advances, products or services, which characterise Croatia internationally, and which have their respective authorised bodies or organisations at the government level (e.g. glagoljica, mestrovic, tesla, plitvice, kravata); of long-term projects and programs of government and national significance, initiated and led by government bodies (e.g. CROSNET, NISKA, PROTIV-DROGE, etc.); of national and international events and happenings of special significance for RH (e.g. sport competitions such as world or regional sports games or championships, world exhibitions, symposia, congresses, etc.). HR-V domain is a secondary domain within HR domain, i.e. domain at the level immediately below the HR domain level. Registration rules for HR-V domain, as well as the rights and responsibilities related to the registration and use of the HR-V domain are defined in Articles 42 – 44 and 56 of these Regulations. The list of HR-V domains is published at the address http://www.dns.hr/HR-V-domene/ according to the provisions of Article 44 of these Regulations.

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Article 12 The aim of HR-I domain is to improve the RH information space by allowing legal and natural persons to create virtual identity for high-quality information services in the respective field stated in the domain registration application. The respective fields should be related to natural, economic, historical, cultural, scientific or other intellectual or material wealth, resources, or advances, and related to, of interest or significant for the Republic of Croatia (RH). HR-I domain is a secondary domain within HR domain, i.e. domain at the level immediately below the HR domain level. Registration rules for HR-I domain, as well as the rights and responsibilities related to the registration and use of the HR-I domain are defined in Articles 45-47, and 57-60 of these Regulations. HR-I domains are subject to obligatory re-registration according to the provisions of these Regulations every 2 years. Individual legal person (according to Article 21 of these Regulations) or natural person (according to Article 22 of these Regulations) – a citizen of the Republic of Croatia, can register two HR-I domains. The list of HR-I domains is published at the address http://www.dns.hr/HR-I-domene/ according to the provisions of Article 47 of these Regulations. III NAMES OF DOMAINS WITHIN HR DOMAIN This section defines the common and specific rules related to the names of the six types of domains, registered according to these Regulations. Article 13 The full name of the domain (e.g. "ivan-horvat-zg.from.hr" or “pliva.hr”), registered according to these Regulations, consists of a specific part of the name (further in the text domain name), selected by the domain registration applicant (e.g. "ivan-horvat-zg" or “pliva”) and the standard (fixed) part of the name (e.g. ".from.hr" or “.hr”). The domain name, regardless of its type, represents a string of characters that have to fulfil the following technical conditions: it consists only of characters contained in the set of: 26 letters of the English alphabet (not distinguishing between small and capital letters), digits "0"-"9" and character "-"; it consists of minimum 3, and maximum 65 characters; the first and the last character in the string cannot be "-"; it cannot contain only digits. As an exception, the HR-T domain name must fulfil the following (simplified) conditions: it consists only of characters contained in the set of: 26 letters of the English alphabet (not distinguishing between small and capital letters), digits "0"-"9" and character "-"; it consists of minimum 2, and maximum 65 characters; the first and the last character in the string cannot be "-".

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Article 14 The domain name must be in accordance with the existing positive legal regulations, as well as with the general ethics rulings and moral principles, i.e. it must not be offensive to the third parties. The domain name must not provide the domain user with the possibility of falsely acquiring the identity of a third party. The domain name should not equal the trademark, especially the protected verbal sign, unless the applicant – the domain user is the trademark owner. In case of objection by the third party, or a dispute between the third party and the domain user, caused by the domain misuses, described in Items 1, 2 and 3 of this Article, CARNet, as HR domain administrator, is not responsible towards the disputant parties, but rather instructs them to settle the dispute according to the provisions of Article 72 of these Regulations. Article 15 The HR-P domain name can be any string of characters that satisfies the conditions contained in these Regulations. Considering the aim of HR-P domain and the fact that legal person can obtain only one such domain, the recommendation is to select the name that equals the company, i.e. the name, part of the company, i.e. the name or abbreviated company, i.e. abbreviated name of the legal person registering the domain. If the domain name does not equal the company, i.e. the name or abbreviated name given in the document on the registration of the legal person in the respective register, when requesting the domain registration, the applicant has to explain the reasons because of which the specific domain name is requested. The statement of reasons is an element of the public part of the documentation related to the domain registration. Article 16 The HR-F domain name can consists of three elements: (a) the surname of the natural person requesting registration (provided the letters "c", "c", "d", "š" and "ž" contained in the surname are replaced by letters "c", "c", "dj" or "d", "s" and "z" respectively, in the domain name); (b) the names of the natural person requesting registration (provided the letters "c", "c", "d", "š" and "ž" in the surname are replaced by the letters "c", "c", "dj" or "d", "s" and "z" respectively, in the domain name); (c) any string of characters allowed for use in the domain name. The name has to consist of the elements from paragraph 1 item a) and b) of this article. In case the natural person has more than one name or surname, they can request the domain name not consisting of all names and surnames, in which case the name will consist of at least one natural person’s name and one surname. The elements contained in the HR-F domain name can appear in random order, and can, but not necessarily, be separated by the character “-“.

Article20 The HR-I domain name can be any string of characters that fulfil the conditions contained in these Regulations. Considering the purpose of HR-I domain, the HR-I domain name, as a rule, consists of one or more words in the Croatian language or one of the world languages. IV QUALIFIED REGISTRATION APPLICANTS – DOMAIN USERS This section defines the criteria which need to be fulfilled by the users of certain types of domains.

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Article 47 Domains registered as HR-I domains must be entered into the HR-I domains register, published at the address http://www.dns.hr/HR-I-domene/. Each domain entered in the HR-I domains register contains the domain name, the domain user, the application date, and the statement of reasons or summary of the statement of reasons submitted by the domain user when applying for registration. Special Provisions for the Internet Services Providers Article 48 A qualified applicant, proved undoubtedly by the document of registration issued by the appropriate government register to be an Internet service provider, i.e. that on the basis of his/her activities and by means of resources owned by him/her a great number of other legal subjects realise their activities through the Internet, will be granted registration of one additional domain (HR-P domain, i.e. HR-D domain). The domain user can use the additional domain exclusively for the needs of other legal subjects – the users s/he provides with the Internet services, and with the aim of separating his/her virtual identity from the virtual identity of his/her users. VII RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF DOMAIN USERS AND THIRD INTERESTED PARTIES REGARDING DOMAIN USE General Rights and Responsibilities of the Domain Users Article 49 As soon as the decision on the domain registration is issued, the domain user has the right to use it, including both the right and the responsibility to organise and manage the domain space “below” the granted domain. The domain user must use the domain only for the purpose stated in the domain registration. The domain user is to use the domain in the usual way, which means as usual within the world Internet community. Article 50 The domain user must inform the HR-DNS service about any change of data about him/herself, and the use of the domain, within the time and in such a way as determined by the HR-DNS service. Article 51 The relation between the domain user and the HR-DNS service, as HR domain administrator service, should be bona fide and constructive, which means in accordance with the relation between the domain user and administrator of the hierarchically superior domain which is usual for the Internet community. The domain user must comply with and implement the technical recommendations made by the HR-DNS service.
Page 15 / 29 ver.2.2/19.01.2002.
Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
The domain user, as well as the trustee, must co-operate with the CARNet DNS service, i.e. persons authorised by the HR-DNS service, regarding questions in relation to topics and activities that are based on the computers in the user’s domain space. This co-operation means also taking measures to restricting or preventing activities that are considered domain misuse and cause damage to the domain users, i.e. all the users of the HR-domain. Article 52 Official contacts between the domain users and the HR-DNS service, especially regarding administrative issues and questions of rights and responsibilities for using the domain are handled through the addresses defined by the domain user in the administrative data stated in the domain registration or in a subsequent change of these data, and the HR-DNS service will prefer electronic communication. The HR-DNS service will automatically send information in electronic form to the trustee, if nominated, and if his/her e-mail address is known. Article 53 In his/her counselling activities towards the domain user, as well as in the practical activities related to the functioning of the domain, the user’s trustee, if nominated, must comply with the provisions stated in these Regulations, implement them in a way most suitable to the domain user, and act as if s/he alone would be responsible for all the consequences resulting from these activities. Article 54 The domain user is responsible for any domain misuse. Domain misuse includes any registration and use of the domain which is not in compliance with the purpose of the domain and the provisions of these Regulations. The domain user (or domain registration applicant) is fully responsible for any violation of intellectual property (i.e. copyright and industrial property, particularly trademarks, i.e. protected verbal signs, according to the Trademark Act (Official Gazette NN 78/99) and the Trademark Regulations (Official Gazette 146/99)), as well as for any damage caused by such violation, which results from starting the domain registration procedure, registration or use of the domain. CARNet, as HR domain administrator, does not and cannot accept any responsibility for the above mentioned. In the case of dispute between the domain user (or the applicant) and a third party, caused by domain misuse described in Items 1 and 2 of this Article, CARNet, as HR domain administrator, is not responsible towards the parties in dispute, but rather instructs them to settle the dispute according to the provisions of Article 72 of these Regulations Article 55 The domain user must not let other subjects use his/her domain (except under the conditions from Article 48 of these Regulations), renounce his/her domain in favour of other subjects, or undertake any activities related to the domain status, if the goal is to gain financial, material or other benefits from the other subject, interested in using the domain. The domain user must not register the domain and use it so as to inflict financial, material, market, intellectual or any other damage on the third parties. The domain user must not found other legal entities with exclusive aim of gaining rights to use additional domains contrary to the provisions of these Regulations.

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
If the HR-DNS service determines that the domain user has handled contrary to the provisions of the Items 1, 2 and 3 of this Article, the service can make the decision by which that user is not permitted to register new domains over a subsequent period of 3 years, and the registration of the given domains is revoked. The decision-making procedure mentioned in the previous Item is defined in more detail by the document Procedure of Registering and Deleting Subdomains within the HR Domain. Special Responsibilities of the HR-V and HR-I Domain Users Article 56 The HR-V domain user can use the domain exclusively for special purposes, for which the domain has been registered. The presentation or the users’ activities, i.e. virtual identity of the user, its officials, employees or co-workers cannot be implemented through the HR-V domain, but through the basic (HR-P) domain, which the user can register for the mentioned purposes. Article 57 The HR-I domain user can use the domain exclusively for special purposes, for which the domain has been registered. The presentation or the users’ activities, i.e. virtual identity of the user, its officials, employees or co-workers, or virtual identity or market demand for its products cannot be realised through the HR-I domain, but through the basic (HR-P or HR-F) domain or HR-T domain, which the user can register for the mentioned purposes. Article 58 The HR-I domain user must activate the domain within 30 days from the registration day and must start to publish information in the respective field stated in the domain registration. The HR-I domain user must permanently maintain the quality and update information published by means of the domain. Article 59 The HR-I domain user must request domain re-registration no later than 60 days before the two year period from the day of the previous domain registration day. The domain re-registration proceeds according to the special provisions on the HR-I domain registration procedure from Articles 45 and 46 of these Regulations. The domain re-registration, lacking the recommendation by the authorised government body from Article 45, Item 2, can be carried out maximally twice. In case of receiving a second application in the re-registration procedure, as opposed to Article 46, Item 3, the HR-DNS service will, regardless of the type of the second application, instruct the applicants to settle their dispute by agreement or by arbitration, according to the provisions of Article 72 of these Regulations. Until agreement has been reached or decision by the arbitrator made, the HR-I domain user will be allowed to continue to use the domain. Article 60 In case of HR-I domain the type of domain can be changed into HR-P or HR-V domain, if the HR-DNS service receives an agreement between the actual user of that HR-I domain and the qualified applicant for HR-P, i.e. HR-V domain.

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Revocation of the Domain Registration Article 61 Registration of the domain may be revoked, and the domain deleted from the Register, provided one of the following conditions is met: (a) the domain user has requested in writing that the domain registration be revoked and the domain deleted from the Register; (b) the domain user has not within 60 days from the day the decision was sent to the official address of the user, met the requirements set by the HR-DNS service, listed in the decision on urgent deactivating of the domain; (c) the HR-DNS service determined on the basis of valid documentation that more than three years have passed since the legal entity, who was the domain user, has ceased to exist, or the natural person, who was the domain user, has died, during which no valid request has been submitted claiming rights on the domain or right to inherit the domain; (d) the domain user has not responded to the repeated written request by the HR-DNS service within a period longer than 60 days from the day the inquiry has been sent to the official user’s address; (e) the domain user has openly violated the Regulations, from Article 55. The domains for which the registration has been revoked are automatically deactivated using emergency procedure, if the domain had not been deactivated before the registration was revoked. Regardless of domain revocation, the Register holds permanently the entry about the owner and the time period of domain registration. The registration revocation and the domain deleting procedure is defined in more detail by the document Procedure on Registering and Deleting Subdomains within the HR Domain. Activating and Deactivating Domains Article 62 The domain user or his/her trustee have the right to request activation of the registered domain, thus making the domain accessible on the Internet. The request for activating the domain means that the domain user is ready to meet the minimum technical conditions set by the HR-DNS service and to take over the responsibilities and co-operation with the CARNet DNS service regarding issues related to the activities that are based on computers using the names of the domain user’s domain space. The domain activating procedure is defined in more detail by the document Procedure of Activating and Deactivating of Registered Subdomains within HR Domain. Article 63 A domain may be deactivated using a regular or an emergency procedure. Article 64 The domain may be deactivated using a regular procedure provided one of the following conditions is met:
Page 18 / 29 ver.2.2/19.01.2002.
Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
(a) the date has come, for which the domain user has requested the DNS service in the written form of a Statement to deactivate the domain; (b) the domain user is using the domain for purposes different from those defined by these Regulations for certain types of domains. The decision on deactivation using a regular procedure in case of (b) of the previous Item is to be delivered to the domain user at least 10 working days in advance. Article 65 A domain may be deactivated using emergency procedure provided one of the following conditions is met: (a) the user provided incorrect or non-credible data and documentation during registration procedure; (b) the user did not provide information about the change of obligatory data about him/herself or the domain use; (c) the domain user does not carry out his/her duties and responsibilities, defined by these Regulations; (d) the domain user cannot satisfy the minimum technical requirements related to the functioning of the domain, leading to the problem of DNS system functioning of the HR domain; (e) the domain user does not accept responsibility or does not co-operate with the CARNet DNS service, i.e. persons or services delegated by the HR-DNS service, regarding issues related to the activities based on the computers, which use the names from the domain user’s domain space; (f) the domain user is misusing the domain, using it contrary to the purpose for which it was registered; (g) the domain user is misusing the domain, by (not)using it, and thus violating the intellectual property, especially the copyright, and trademarks, i.e. protected verbal signs registered or acknowledged by the State Bureau for Intellectual Property; (h) the domain user fails to settle the accounts according to these Regulations and the Decision on Charging the HR-DNS Services. The Decision on deactivating the domain using emergency procedure is to be delivered to the domain user at least 24 hours in advance. Article 66 The domain deactivating procedure is defined in more detail by the document Procedure of Activating and Deactivating of Registered Subdomains within HR Domain. Change of Name, Acquiring Rights for a Domain, Inheritance, and Transfer of Domain Article 67 The domain user may request the change of domain name. The procedure for delegating a domain of a new name is the same as the procedure for domain registration. The procedure regarding domain name change is defined in more detail by the document Procedure of Registering and Deleting Subdomains within HR Domain. Page 19 / 29 ver.2.2/19.01.2002.
Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Article 68 If the legal entity – the domain user has ceased to exist, the legal successors of the legal entity may claim the rights to the domain, as well as domain inheritance, i.e. re-registration of the existing domain in their favour and their entry in the Register as the domain user. A valid document stating the legal inheritance of the legal entity has to be enclosed with the Request. The mentioned document must unambiguously state the right to inherit the rights on the domain and to inherit the domain as a non-dividable resource. If the natural person – the domain user has died, the person’s inheritors may request to inherit the domain, i.e. re-registration of the existing domain in their favour and their entry into the Register as the domain owner. A valid and executory document about the inheritance of the natural person has to be enclosed with the Request. The mentioned document must unambiguously state the right to inherit the domain as a non-dividable resource. The procedure of claiming the rights to the domain and domain inheritance are defined in more detail by the document Procedure of Registering and Deleting Subdomains within HR Domain. Article 69 The domain user may renounce his/her rights to use the domain in favour of another applicant, if this other applicant meets the conditions required for registration of that domain according to the provisions of these Regulations and according to the regular procedure of domain registration, which will be carried out for him/her. Renouncing the rights to use the domain in favour of another subject is done by submitting a Request to change the domain user, co-signed by the actual and the future domain user. Renouncing of rights to use the domain is final and irrevocable. The procedure regarding domain user change is defined in more detail by the document Procedure of Registering and Deleting Subdomains within HR Domain. VIII HANDLING OF COMPLAINTS AND SETTLING DISPUTES Complaints and Objections to the Decisions and Operation of the HR-DNS Service Article 70 Handling of complaints regarding decisions made by the HR-DNS service related to handling Applications for Domain Registration is defined by Article 40 of these Regulations.

Regulations on Organisation and Management of the Top-level "hr" Domain
Objections may be submitted within 30 days from the day when the activity or the procedure which are subject of the objection occurred, i.e. 30 days from the day when the decision was delivered. The Commission has to issue a written Declaration on the Objection within 30 days from the day of submitting the objection. The Declaration issued by the Commission is sent to the HR-DNS service and the objection submitter by registered post. The Commission’s standpoints stated in the Declaration are final and executory for the HR-DNS service. Settlement of Disputes Article 72 A third party, not satisfied by the (status) of registration of a certain domain may undertake the following actions (in the order of priority) in the dispute over the registered domain. (a) reach agreement with the actual domain user, e.g. according to Articles 67 or 69 of these Regulations; (b) initiation of the arbitral proceeding, according to the Rules on arbitration for solving disputes regarding subdomains within .hr domain, (c) file charges to the court of jurisdiction in the Republic of Croatia against the actual domain user, regarding the use of the domain in dispute by the user. The disputant parties are instructed to settle the disputes primarily by agreement. Upon request of a disputant party, the HR-DNS service will try to organise a meeting with the aim of reaching agreement. In case agreement has been reached, the domain user may handle according to Articles 67 or 69, or submit the text of the agreement to the HR-DNS service, clearly stating the agreed upon changes related to the domain. The agreement has to be signed and verified by both parties, and in accordance with the provisions of these Regulations. In resolving disputes, the priority is also given to the arbitration procedure over litigation. In case of litigation, the party interested in effecting a change, has to submit to the HR-DNS service final decision issued by the court of jurisdiction (or a notarised copy of the court decision) which has to state explicit provisions related to the given domain and changes that need to be effected. Arbitration Procedure Article 73 The arbitral proceeding is regulated by “The Rules on arbitration for solving disputes regarding subdomains within .hr domain”, issued by the CARNet’s Board of Governors. IX COSTS AND FEES RELATED TO HR DOMAIN MANAGEMENT Article 74 In determining costs and fees, the fact should be taken into consideration that the activities related to managing HR domain are partly, first of all in providing the basic rights of the legal
