The Policy also contains clarification of the English translation.
For the .LV Registry to ensure its operation and development, the quality and security of services, as well as the improvement of the service in the long term, this year, after evaluating the cost of the service, industry trends, the increase of the expenses of the energy and other resources, NIC updates the service prices in line with the actual costs, while maintaining discounts for Registrars and state and municipal institutions.

We invite you to send input to firstname.lastname@example.org; we will review each submission and provide clarification if necessary. We will also submit the documents to the Ministry of Transport of Latvia for evaluation.
Amendments, dispute policy, and rules will enter into force on September 1, 2023. The out-of-court alternative dispute resolution procedure will be available after the approval of a service provider with expertise in resolving domain name and intellectual property rights disputes.
