The Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre (ADNDRC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Wang Chengjie as its new Chair.
ADNDRC provides comprehensive online dispute resolution services for resolving domain name disputes including those arising out of gTLDs, new gTLDs and certain ccTLDs. It is a dispute resolution service provider accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Founded in 2002, today ADNDRC has offices in Beijing (operated by China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC)), Hong Kong (operated by Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC)), Kuala Lumpur (operated by Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC)), and Seoul (operated by the Internet address Dispute Resolution Committee (IDRC)).
ADNDRC is governed by its Council composed of leading professionals specialised in domain name dispute resolution, intellectual property, the Internet, and e-commerce. The Council is led by the Chair, and the role of Chair is rotated across the four offices every three years. The work of the Council is supported by the ADNDRC Secretariat, which is currently operated by the Hong Kong office (HKIAC) and overseen by the ADNDRC Secretary-General, Kiran Sanghera.
Mr Wang Chengjie steps into the role as Chair with ample experience of managing a dispute resolution centre given his long-standing position as the Vice Chairman & Secretary General of CIETAC.
Mr Wang says: “I have always had a close connection with ADNDRC having witnessed its establishment by HKIAC and CIETAC in 2002 and its growth over the past 20 years. ADNDRC has grown from its two founding members to operating four offices today, providing efficient, flexible and cost-effective domain name dispute resolution services to many trademark holders around the world. I look forward to working with all four offices and the ADNDRC Secretariat to ensure ADNDRC’s popularity and usability amongst users for years to come.”
In addition to administering domain name dispute resolution proceedings under the UDRP, ADNDRC also administers proceedings under the following ICANN policies:-
- Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS)
