Apart from the Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing Contacts, two additional Contacts as explained below need to be associated with a .ASIA domain name:
An Operations and Notifications Contact (OPN Contact) is submitted to designate the point of contact to whom documentary evidence requests, auction invitations, and reminders are to be sent.
Updates to the OPN Contact will not be permitted during Sunrise period. The .ASIA Registry does not guarantee that any changes to OPN Contact will be effected in the notification system immediately. If you update the OPN Contact, you must continue to accept and expect notifications being sent to the previous OPN Contact for a reasonable period of time after the submission of the changes.
The OPN Contact must be specified for all Sunrise applications. This Contact is optional for Landrush and Live Registrations.
Every domain registration application must include at least one Domain Contact that is a legal entity in the DotAsia Community. The DotAsia Community is defined based on the geographical boundaries described by the ICANN Asia / Australia / Pacific region (http://www.icann.org/montreal/geo-regions-topic.htm).
The Registrant Contact shall warrant and represent that Domain Contact to make the Charter Eligibility Declaration (CED), who shall thence be referred to as "CED Contact". The CED Contact, along with the Registrant Contact, is jointly responsible and liable for the domain name. In the event of a domain name dispute, both the CED Contact and the Registrant Contact can be named as the responding party to any allegations arisen.
For those entities that do not have a separate legal personality, such as a partnership in some economies, a natural person (e.g. a partner) may be used as one of the Domain Contacts and named as the CED Contact.
The designated CED Contact must provide additional information to make the declaration to the effect that it is a legal entity within the DotAsia Community. The required information includes:
If 2(i) and/or 3(f) is declared, the appropriate information for the Type of Legal Entity and Form of Identification to support the claim must be entered into 5.
Any Registrant, Admin, Tech, or Billing Contact may be extended into a CED Contact, however at least one of the four aforementioned contacts must contain CED information.
After the completion of the Sunrise process, the CED Contact may amend its Charter Eligibility Declaration at anytime. An Operating Contact (i.e. the Registrant Contact) may replace the CED Contact on file provided that the new CED Contact fulfils the Charter Eligibility Requirement.
Changes to CED Contact information (in fact all information relating to a domain) and replacement of CED Contacts are, however, not permitted when proceedings have been commenced under the Charter Eligibility Dispute Resolution Policy (CEDRP).
