Starting on December 1, 2013, NIC Chile will apply new application policies and dispute settlement procedures concerning .cl Domain Names. The most important changes introduced are the following:

NIC Chile will publish all registrations and enable immediate operation of the newly registered domain names.
- Revocation requests will replace Domain Name oppositions.
- User account system for comprehensive management of Domain Names portfolio: Operations such as application, renewal and other proceedings, may be managed through this platform.
- Clearly defined roles and functions for Domain Name agent managers: holder, commercial manager, technician and administrative.
- Removal of Mediation stage, which will be replaced by online arbitration.
- Standardization of Arbitrators’ fees, which will be announced by NIC Chile.
