Active Survey

ccTLDs and National Legislation – The survey aims to find out how
the ccTLDs relate to their national governments in respect to
legislation (if any) and interaction with government authorities. Other
regional organisations (CENTR, LACTLD) are running the same
survey and thanks to a data sharing arrangement some of the non-
sensitive data will be aggregated, shared and included in a report
which will be published after all data has been collected and analysed.
Access the survey at:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/aptld_Gov_leg
A-Level Survey 2014 – The data gathered from this survey will be used

received: . .ae, .af, .as, .au, .cc & .tv, .cn and .
