Public Interest Registry
"Public Interest Registry shares the Internet Watch Foundation’s commitment to identify and eliminate child sexual abuse material (CSAM) found on the Domain Name System. As an exemplary registry, PIR has a zero-tolerance policy on CSAM, and we partner closely with IWF to eliminate CSAM found on the 10.3 million domains under PIR management.
Fighting CSAM requires constant vigilance. Since 2018, PIR has partnered with IWF to deploy its Domain Alert system. Through it, IWF analysts notify PIR when it identifies CSAM. PIR then works with its registrars and registrants to promptly remove and/or suspend the domain to render the content inaccessible. In most instances, the content is promptly removed.
This system has removed more than 2,400 CSAM images across 148 domain names in .ORG. Nearly half of CSAM that IWF identified on .ORG consists of images captured through a single .ORG domain name—the Internet Wayback Machine—that archives web content from all top-level domains (thus, CSAM from other domains gets attributed to .ORG). PIR has worked to develop a process to remove all identified CSAM content from the Wayback Machine archives.
PIR champions CSAM mitigation efforts across the Domain Name System and co-founded a CSAM Referral Discussion Group that enables domain name registries and registrars to share best practices and bring in expert organizations like IWF and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and law enforcement agencies to discuss CSAM mitigation.
PIR will continue to work with IWF, law enforcement and other organizations to eliminate CSAM."

"At the New Zealand Domain Name Commission, we aim to keep the .nz domain name space safe, trusted and secure. Ridding the .nz domain name zone of child explicit sexual abuse material is our major priority, and IWF threat feeds are an invaluable early warning system for us. We appreciate the opportunity to learn from other country code top-level domain name administrators' and organisations' effort to disrupt this harmful material from circulating online. We believe that this a global issue that requires local responses made stronger by the whole global network being greater than the sum of individual parts. Access to the IWF violations reports and intel information helps us to collaborate with New Zealand law enforcement agencies and for them to act against the circulation of child sexual abuse materials associated with .nz domain names."
