The .za Domain Name Authority (.ZADNA) is a not-for-profit organisation that manages and regulates the .za namespace. .ZADNA is accountable to the South African Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services, but does not receive government funding which means it is exempted from complying with the Public Finance Management Act.
ZADNA’s constitution is in the form of a Memorandum and Articles of Association in terms of the Companies Act.
The nomination panel interviews the short-listed nominees and recommends appointments to the Minister.
The Minister then chooses to accept all the recommended appointments or to refer some back to the panel for further consideration.
