The .au domain space is a vital national resource, and in 1999, as the culmination of efforts since 1995, auDA was formed to manage it.
In December 2000, the Australian Government formally endorsed auDA as the appropriate body to administer the .au domain space. The Government holds reserve powers in relation to domain names under the Telecommunications Act 1997.
In October 2001, ICANN recognised auDA as the suitable operator for .au under a Sponsorship Agreement.
