PARIS - The French Registry for the .fr and .re domain names (AFNIC) announced that it will launch the new dispute resolution system (Syreli) after being approved by the French Minister of Electronic Communication.

The dispute resolution system is a part of new legal framework set up subsequent to a decision of the French Constitutional Council on October 6, 2010.
