ICANN's Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP)

What is IRTP? 
The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) was developed by ICANN for the safe and straightforward transfer of domain names from one registrar to another. 
The policy contains information about the method of transferring a domain name, dispute resolution mechanism and the method of undoing the transfer if it was done as a result of an error.
Initially announced in September 2015, the amended Transfer Policy is applicable to all gTLD names and ICANN-accredited registrars, and the amended Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy (TDRP) is applicable to all gTLD names, ICANN-accredited registrars and registries. 
These new requirements took effect and have been enforced by ICANN on December 1, 2016.

What are the material changes that will trigger the IRTP Verification Process? 
Any modifications made to the registrants name, organization and email address would trigger the IRTP Verification Process. 

How can I modify my contact information? 
In order to modify the contact details, you can log in to the domain overview panel and click on contact details. 

Do I have to comply with the 60 day lock period in case of a registrant transfer? 
The new IRTP-c has a provision factored into it that states a 60 day lock period.

As a registrant how many days do I have to complete the verification process? 
As per the IRTP the losing and the gaining registrant have a collective of 60 days to complete the verification process. 

What if I can’t access my old registrant email address? 
If you don’t have access to the existing registrant email address, please raise a ticket.
