The department has had no separate, specific discussions with Nominet on the stakeholders who would be consulted on the same of .uk domain names. However, the issue was discussed at a number of Nominet Policy Stakeholder Committee meetings, of which the Department is a member of. This was an important forum for discussion about wider stakeholder engagement on this consultation.

As with all consultations, we would expect Nominet to consult with all interested parties, including civil society, the private sector and the technical community, in line with the multi-stakeholder model for internet governance that the government supports.
