#UDRP filing cost to increase at the National Arbitration Forum

The fee schedule of the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) gets a price increase on October 1st, along with other new rules on UDRP disputes.

According to an announcement by NAF, the following updates are effective at the beginning of next month:

  • Rule 1(d) will be changed to reflect the current practice of requiring the amendment of the complaint to include the registration information received from the registrar;
  • Rule 5 will be amended to similarly rely upon the Respondent’s email address as provided by the Registrar;
  • Rule 7 regarding additional submissions will be amended to reflect the practice of other providers and removes the additional submission fee;
  • Finally, the fee schedule will be amended to increase the filing fee by $30 for each filing.

NAF implemented the changes to the UDRP and other Supplemental Rules, to align with current processes as a result of GDPR and other privacy issues and to address some reoccurring procedural issues encountered in the past.

The UDRP process turns 20 years old in October as well.
