Who creates a contact-ID, Registry Services or the registrar?

Updated 10 May, 2020

The registrar personally does this via EPP by entering the command “create contact.” The EPP manual includes information on the recommended format. 

However, when changing registrars, Registry Services creates the contact-ID, by copying the information in the existing contact and creating the new contact/contactID.
