auDRP fee increase to take effect on 1 March 2008
auDA conducted a five year review of the .au Dispute Resolution Policy (auDRP) in 2007.
auDA agreed with submissions that, after 5 years of operation, a reasonable fee increase is justified to more accurately reflect the amount of work involved for both auDRP providers and panelists.
From 1 March 2008, the new auDRP fee schedule will be:
Three Member Panel
We note that the increase brings auDRP fees roughly into line with UDRP fees for gTLD disputes.
auDRP fees are paid to auDRP providers by the parties to a proceeding. auDA does not collect any part of the auDRP fee.
