Created by Intergovernmental Treaty on June 3rd 2011.
The public listing of our Treaty documentions at the UN Treaty Series database is still in process, which has been known to take up to 2 years in some cases.
In the interim, our legal status is instantly verifiable by our official intergovernmental domain name.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Legal Dept, will only grant .INT domains to Legitimate Intergovernmental Organizations in order to enable both the public and other organizations to know instantly that they are dealing with a legally formed IGO.
The legal status of EDU as an IGO (Intergovernmental Organization) has been fully verified by the legal experts at IANA. Hence this organization’s ownership of WWW.EDU.INT
Other intergovernmental organizations with .INT domains include.
