APNIC is working on upgrading the APNIC Whois Database in 2017.
The motivation behind the upgrade is to take advantage of new objects type,new flags and attributes and enhanced syntax. It will have a better operational testing platform, along with providing richer APNIC database query options.
The highlight of this upgrade is to introduce an organization object to contain your organization information. All of your resources can be linked to your organization object.
For more information about the impact of proposed features and changes, please refer to the APNIC Whois database upgrade plan.
We welcome your feedback. If you have any suggestions or concerns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
