.uk: Local contact is not required any more

May 24, 2018 - Product updates

Since May 22, 2018 there's a local contact is not required anymore for .uk domain registrations. As a consequence the trustee service is also not necessary anymore.

The trustee (service contact) has been removed for all .uk domains currently using a trustee service. This means that the tech contact has been replaced by the owner contact.

Background: Due to the upcoming introduction of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Nominet has changed their policies for .uk domain names and abandonded the local contact requirement (service contact). The new policies are valid as of May 22, 2018.
