What is the role of the China Internet Network Information Center (CINIC)?

The China Internet Network Information Center (CINIC) has switched to an administrative role with respect to Chinese character domain names, but retains its former role with respect to Roman-letter names. CINIC retains its role under the auspices of the Ministry of Information Industry and is an impartial, non-profit administrator of domain names. Registration services will be devolved to other authorized registrars, of which there are currently nine.

Registration in respect of Roman-letter domain names has not yet been simplified. Neither is there an equivalent of the ICANN-based international dispute resolution procedures for Roman-letter domain names, as there are for Chinese characters.
