Regulation (EC) No 733/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 April 2002 on the implementation of the .eu Top Level Domain (Text with EEA relevance)

The creation of Top Level Domain (TLD) is included as one of the targets to accelerate the growth of electronic commerce. The objective of this Regulation is to establish the conditions of implementation of TLD, to provide for the designation of a Registry and establish the general policy framework within which the Registry will function. National ccTLDs are not covered by this Regulation. The intention of the .eu TLD is not to replace the existing national TLDs in the EU, but to complement them and to give its users the additional option of having a pan-European Internet identity for their web sites and e-mail addresses.
