Nominet is recognised by the Government as the registry with responsibility for oversight of the top level internet domain. It is a private sector, not for profit, public purpose company. Nominet's day-to-day operations are not subject to regulation by Government.

Nominet has informed Government of the actions it has undertaken to raise awareness of its consultation process. These include coverage through news articles and other media, hosting a series of public roundtable events and working with member's organisations, for example the British Computer Society, to provide news stories, guest articles and briefings for their members.
