ISC Response to NIS2

Internet Systems Consortium today submitted comments on the proposed NIS2 Directive to the European Commission. The Directive may unintentionally draw all 12 of the world’s root server operators into regulatory coverage. This brings the potential to ignite multinational regulatory conflict, to destabilize the diversity that underpins global trust in the root name server system, to undermine the current multistakeholder arrangements that govern the engineering structure of the Internet, and to fragment the Internet’s global unitary DNS system.

The submission is also available online on the European Commission website.
