Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedure (ADR)

As the holder of a “.ma” domain name, you are subject to the Alternative Litigation Procedure (ADR).

This is an extrajudicial procedure, administered by the Arbitration and Mediation Center of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It applies to all registered “.ma” domain names.

ADR only applies to disputes relating to “.ma” domain names relating to trademarks or service marks protected in Morocco, between a Holder and a third party.

ADR does not aim in any case the disputes relating to the responsibility of the ANRT and that of the providers.

ADR does not preclude the seizure of a court of competent jurisdiction for the same litigation before, during or after such proceedings. In this case, the final decision taken by said court will be applied.

See the Alternative Domain Name Resolution Procedure Regulation “.ma”.


Responsibilities of the ANRT and the Providers in a ADR

The ANRT does not intervene in an implemented ADR, and it is not responsible for the decisions rendered.

The ANRT and the provider of the disputed domain name are required to provide any information in their possession on the holder of this domain name at the request of the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center.

ANRT and the service provider apply the decision taken in application of the ADR within the agreed deadlines.
