Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said it will scrutinise the way that internet foundation IIS runs the .se top-level domain register. It said a correctly maintained register is important in ensuring the person that runs a domain can be reached. Certain information about the domain holder must be available by law to those requesting them for a charge, but identifying details can only be provided if the registered individual has given consent.
