1. INTRODUCTION

This document sets out NIRA's policy on the handling of complaints made about domain names, registrars and registrants in the .ng name space.

2. NIRA'S JURISDICTION TO HANDLE COMPLAINTS

2.1 NIRA's jurisdiction to handle complaints is limited to matters relating to the .ng domain space. There are two types of complaints that NIRA handles:
a. complaints about .ng domain names and registrants ("domain complaints); and
b. complaints about .ng domain name services provided by NIRA accredited registrars and their resellers ("industry complaints).
The different types of complaints are explained in more detail in sections 4 and 5 below.
2.2 NIRA does not have the jurisdiction to handle complaints about:
a. generic Top Level Domains (e.g. .com, .net, .biz, .info, etc) or other country code Top Level Domains (e.g. .nz, .uk, .us, etc);
b. web hosting, website management or website design services;
c. Internet access or email services; or
d. possible breaches of Nigerian law relating to Information Technology, telecommunications, broadcasting or unfair business practices.
For complaints about these matters you should contact the relevant government authority.

3. NIRA'S COMPLAINTS-HANDLING PROCESS

3.1 Complaints may be submitted to NIRA via the online form on NIRA's website, by fax or by post. NIRA will acknowledge receipt of the complaint and indicate the timeframe that the complainant can expect a response (Subject to paragraph 2.3). NIRA will endeavor to resolve complainant's complaint within thirty (30) days, but if complainant's complaint is complex it may take several weeks to resolve. If this is the case, NIRA will keep complainants informed of the progress of complainant's complaint on a weekly basis.
3.2 On receipt of the complaint, where appropriate, NIRA will request a response from the registrant or registrar involved. NIRA will investigate the complaint based on the facts provided by all parties involved in the matter. NIRA may seek further information from any party to assist with its investigation. NIRA may place a registry server lock on the domain name(s) in question, in order to preserve the status quo whilst the investigation is pending.

e. breaches of the domain name license terms and conditions, or any NIRA Policy.
4.2 NIRA is the first point of contact for the above mentioned domain complaints. NIRA will investigate all complaint on the basis of whether there has been a breach of NIRA policy, not on the basis of whether the complainant has a better claim to the domain name, or whether complainant's rights in the domain name have been infringed. If the desired outcome is transfer of the domain name to the complainant, then the complainant should consider lodging a complaint under the NIRA Dispute Resolution Policy or taking legal action directly against the registrant.
4.3 If the complaint is upheld, NIRA may take one or more of the following actions:
a. instruct the registrar of record to "policy delete the domain name(s) in question;

5.3 Before making a complaint to NIRA, complainant must allow a reasonable period of time of at least seven (7) days for the registrar to respond to the complaint. NIRA will not investigate any complaint unless the complainant has done so.

b. request the registrar to remedy their error and/or refund any payment for services not received;
