Dear Stakeholders,

Organizations generally put in place appropriate policies for the
detection and prevention of frauds, corruptions, misappropriations,
and other inappropriate conduct. You can find more information about
an AFRINIC policy and its implementation at

The AFRINIC Members mailing list
<https://lists.afrinic.net/mailman/listinfo.cgi/members-discuss> is
open to all AFRINIC Resource Members. I suggest that Resource
Members use it if they are interested in discussing AFRINIC business
matters with other Resource Members.

There was a complaint related to a request for access to "Whois
data". It is more difficult to reach agreement when there isn't a
common understanding of the regulatory constraints. Some of the
data, which is categorized as "personal data" [1], is regulated
through data protection laws. There is, for example, the Data
Protection Act 2017 for Mauritius, which is applicable.
