Accepted documentation

The documentation accepted by Nominet, in order to validate the data correctly, is the following:

- Company registry certificate

- Official trade register

- Valid driving license

- Valid National ID card

- Utility bill (last 3 months)

- Bank statement (last 3 months)

- Indirect Tax Notification (last 3 months)

- Official company letterhead 

- Company stamp

Validation email: Timescale and result

The data must be validated within 30 days of receiving the validation email, if not, the domain will be suspended and a Data Quality Lock will be applied meaning the domain cannot be renewed nor  transferred.

After completing the above process, OpenSRS will check the data to see if the document is able to validate the name and address:

- IF THE VALIDATION IS SUCCESSFUL: when the documentation meets the validation requirements, the lock will be removed and the service will be resumed almost immediately.

- IF THE VALIDATION IS NOT SUCCESSFUL: where validation is not successful, a new validation email will be sent to the Registrant’s contact email address. In this case the response time will not be reset, and therefore remain 30 days from the delivery date of the first validation email.
