none of the belgian icann registered domainsellers signed the 2013 agreement

The information that appears for each registrar, including the referral web address and contact information, has been provided by each individual registrar.

The 2013 RAA ICANN logo indicates that the registrar has signed the 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement ("RAA"), which is the most current contract governing the registrar relationship with ICANN. The 2013 RAA provides enhanced protections for registrants and an increased level of accountability for registrars, including but not limited to added registrar posting requirements, added compliance enforcement tools and increased accountability to third parties. Prospective registrants may want to take this fact into account when selecting a registrar for their gTLD name(s). The 2013 RAA ICANN logo is not an indication of how long the registrar has been ICANN accredited. You can view this contract at 13-en.htm.

A registrar with a 2009 RAA ICANN logo is one that has yet to sign the 2013 RAA. Registrars who are covered by the 2009 RAA are obligated to follow many provisions that safeguard registrants, but they will not be able to offer as many generic top level domains in the future.

the only belgians accredited with ICANN have signed the 2009 agreement

what is important is that the 2013 agreement imposes more security and other quality and procedural obligations

maybe we should use the opportunity to only let ICANN 2013 covered domainsellers should be able to sell .brussels and .vlaanderen and so to be sure that we have chosen really important and quality resellers and not the boy from the house down in the street who is having his webbusiness from his living room and his laptop
