On September 30, 2010, NIC.br, the entity which oversees the registration of domain names in Brazil, adopted a mandatory administrative dispute resolution process for all “.br” domain names registered from that date forward.

A new clause added to NIC.br’s standard-form registration contract on September 30, 2010, obligates domain name registrants to consent to the process, which is called “SACI-Adm.” The process is not available for domain names registered prior to September 30, 2010.

The two available remedies are transfer and cancellation of domain name registrations.
