From 4 September the .UK platform will support the Validate Mapping for EPP (draft-ietf-regext-validate-03) extension.
Extension to Nominet EPP transition period
Following feedback from registrars we have extended the transition period for users of Nominet EPP. We will be withdrawing Nominet EPP from 9 July 2013. All registrars that wish to use EPP should ensure that their systems are using the Standard EPP schemas that we support.
