Updated PDT Specifications: Whois Test Updates

3 February 2016

ICANN has updated the PDT Whois test specifications and published a new Whois self-test tool. The updated Whois tests incorporate the requirements of the Additional Whois Information Policy (AWIP) and Whois Advisory.

The new self-test tool is now available. The link to the self-test tool is located in the PDT Resources section below.

The new test specifications have been applied to PDT, but Registry Operators that do not meet the new requirements will be allowed to pass with 'warnings' until the implementation date. The new specifications will be implemented starting 29 February 2016.
