As part of the approved community policy, prop-125: Validation of “abuse-mailbox” and other IRT emails, APNIC will now be publishing an'abuse-c' attribute for resource records in the APNIC Whois Database. The ‘abuse-c’ attribute will reference a 'role' object, which will contain the same contact information currently visible in the Member's IRT object. Any changes to the abuse-c information will need to be done in the IRT object as the abuse-c attribute is generated automatically from the IRT object. For more information about this change, please see the Maintainer and IRT FAQ on the APNIC website:More Updates

To ensure high quality, continuous services, APNIC has specified fixed periods to perform maintenance work as follows:
Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday 07:00 to 09:00 (UTC +10)
APNIC will attempt to avoid interruptions to external services, although in some cases this may not be possible.
All reasonable precautions will also be taken by APNIC to ensure that software and hardware modifications made during a maintenance window have been fully tested before being relied upon for external services.
Some maintenance is time critical, especially security-related updates. In instances when system security may be compromised by not acting immediately, APNIC may perform maintenance without prior notification.
Find out about current, past, and other important updates from the Announcements news archive.
