tzNIC appoints Resolution Experts Ltd as a local Dispute Resolution Services (DRS) Provider

The Tanzania Network Information Centre (tzNIC) has appointed Resolution Experts Ltd (ResEx ltd) as a local provider of dispute resolution services for .tz domain names effective January 2016. Prior to the appointment, .tz disputes were being referred to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) only for resolution. Therefore staring January 2016 ResEx Ltd will be providing .tz domain dispute resolution services alongside WIPO.

ResEx Ltd is a private and independent alternative dispute resolution and conflict management service provider founded in 2014. The firm provides private Mediation, Arbitration, Neutral Evaluation, Investigations and Dispute Management. Online submission of disputes to ResEx Ltd can be done through www.iresolve.co.tz

Currently WIPO provides domain dispute resolution services to about 22% African ccTLDs (http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/cctld/). While this is okay as disputes may come from any corner of the world, local .tz domain dispute resolution services (DRS) is very crucial and important for full localization of .tz ccTLD management and administration. Further advantages of localizing domain DRS include affordability and good understanding of local business environment.
