What measures can be taken to correct inaccurate organization numbers?

Updated 9 Apr, 2020

A domain name may have been registered on an incorrect organization number. See examples below on how correction can take place. Example: A domain name was registered in 2003 on behalf of Company A. However, the registration ended up in the wrong organization number, which led to the holder instead becoming Company B.

The registrar who carried out the registration has been bankrupt for several years, and it is therefore not possible to obtain documents from the registrar. Company A has sent in receipts that they have made payments over the years. A situation such as the one above can be solved by contacting the wrong holder (Company B) and being asked to make a transfer to the right holder (Company A). The incorrect holder (Company B) can also certify in writing that it does not claim the domain name. At the same time, the correct holder (Company A) will submit a certificate stating that they use the domain name and receipts that show they have paid for the domain name on previous occasions. The company A must also accept The Swedish Internet Foundation's terms and conditions of registration.
