.BANK and .INSURANCE compliance escalation policy update

Starting next year, fTLD will apply their new Registrant Domain Name Compliance Escalation and Suspension Policy. The policy can be viewed here. For more detailed information, please refer to this FAQ from the registry.
fTLD will begin sending compliance escalation notifications in January 2023 for compliance findings that are not resolved within a period of 30 days and 60 days. Please note that these escalation notices will go to the domain owner (Registrant), the verification contact of the respective .BANK / .INSURANCE domain, and to the registrar of the record.

Compliance findings that are not resolved within 60 days as specified in the policy will be suspended (i.e., placed on Registrar clientHold or Registry severHold), resulting in the deactivation of the.BANK/.INSURANCE domain's website and email.
Important: fTLD will explicitly inform registrants of the new Policy's implementation date.
