The most current .be domains dispute policy can be found at: dns.be/en/legal/domain_name_disputes/adr_procedure
10. Dispute resolution policy
Upon DNS.be's first request, the registrant shall reimburse the repaid amounts. The registrant will have no recourse against DNS.be, the Dispute Resolution Entity, the Third-party Decider or the complainant for the thus suffered financial loss. The potential financial loss for the registrant is the risk that the latter took for the speculative registration of domain names on which third parties have rights.
The repayment provision specified in the previous paragraph does not apply to the appeal procedure of the dispute resolution proceedings. The costs of the appeal procedure are payable by the party that instituted this procedure.
The costs mentioned in this article only refer to the administrative costs of the dispute resolution proceedings as stipulated in article 10 and do not include any costs or fees for legal advice of the parties.
Alternative dispute resolution procedure
Working in conjunction with the Belgian Centre for Arbitration and Mediation, known as CEPINA (www.cepina.be), DNS.be has developed an Alternative Dispute Resolution procedure (ADR) to deal with disputes relating to .be domain names. This procedure runs quite quickly (average of 55 days) and is carried out entirely in writing. It also involves relatively low costs.
The procedure is set out in detail in article 10 of the DNS.be
General Terms and Conditions. A summary of the procedure follows. If the summary should conflict with what is contained in article 10, the General Terms and Conditions will apply.
Any party with an interest can lodge an application for the alternative dispute resolution with CEPINA to settle a dispute about a .be domain name. The dispute is assessed by an independent Third-Party Decision-Maker, who is a legal expert in the matter. The Third-Party Decider may decide to delete the domain name or to transfer the name to the complainant. Under normal circumstances, the domain name holder is able to reply once in writing to the complainant's arguments.
Admissibility and legitimacy of domain name disputes
A complaint from a third party against a .be registrant will be taken up by CEPINA on condition that the complaint is lodged in accordance with standard conditions and after depositing the procedural costs of 1620 EUR into CEPINA's account.
In order to obtain the transfer of the domain name, all three of these conditions must be demonstrated:
The 15-days execution period starts to count the day after DNS.be was informed of Cepina's ruling and the 15th day fully counts; DNS.be will thus carry out the decision on the 16th day after the day DNS.be was informed and at the earliest at noon.
(In this case, "days" means "calendar days") In some cases some of these periods can be extended.
Costs for the procedure
The fee charged for the procedure is 1620 EUR, which is paid by the complainant at the beginning of the procedure. If the Third-Party Decider rules that the complaint is justified, DNS.be will refund the total of the costs to the complainant. DNS.be will then claim this amount back from the previous, unlawful registrant.
Regardless of the option to submit the dispute to an ordinary court, all parties have the right to lodge an appeal with CEPINA within 15 days of the ruling handed down by the Third-Party Decider. The appeal term counts as an expiry term, which means that when the term has gone by, no appeal can be lodged any more against the Cepina ruling.
The application for appeal must be lodged with CEPINA in accordance with the standard requirements mentioned above and payment of 4,050.00 EUR.
The defending party then has a period of 7 days to respond to the arguments submitted by the other party.
After this, an Appeal Panel of three Third-Party Deciders will be appointed by CEPINA. This panel must take a decision within 30 calendar days of the case being submitted to it. Rulings by the Appeal Panel cannot be appealed any higher.

The cost of transfer will also vary depending on the registrar. Some registrars may be more willing than others to work out a package deal for you.

Again, the deal you score will depend on the registrar and on the amount of time you put into finding a package that is most suited to your needs.
