How does determination work

Expert determination means a qualified expert advises on resolving a domain dispute over who should be the registrant of a domain name. See how these experts support resolving a dispute.

A dispute can be referred to an expert in two circumstances:

1. No Response is submitted

The registrant does not file a response to the initial complaint.

2. Mediation Fails

Mediation between the two parties (see Mediation) does not result in a settlement or resolution.

In each circumstance, the complainant pays a fee of $2000 plus GST for expert determination.
