    First I heard of this ICANN’s new transfer policy will impact your business and your customers - OpenSRS

    The underlined parts are most relevant .. so if you update your domain registration details like first/last name, organization or email address you will undergo approval email verification and domain is locked for 60 days preventing domain transfers.

    So if you want to transfer your domain to a new domain registrar, do not change those contact details until after you transferred your domain. Otherwise, you need to wait 60+ days before you can transfer after contact detail changes !
