New Zealand’s .nz is delegated to InternetNZ, a non-profit that advocates for internet users in the country.  The traditional duties of registries were delegated to two subsidiaries of InternetNZ:

Domain Name Commission (DNCL):  Supervises registry accreditation, domain disputes and policy formation.

New Zealand Registry Services (NZRS):  Operated domain provisioning system and DNS servers for .nz.

In April, the three entities became two, with InternetNZ absorbing NZRS.  The move was made to streamline operations, according to InternetNZ CEO Jordan Carter.

Together with Carter, the reconstituted leadership team will be comprised of six members.  Two were already at InternetNZ, two will be coming from NZRS and the remaining two will be new appointees.
