The NRO acts as the ICANN Address Supporting Organization (ASO), formed to review and develop recommendations on IP address policy and to advise the ICANN Board. An elected body called the NRO Number Council (NRO NC) serves as the ASO Address Council (ASO AC), it oversees recommendations on IP address policy, including the management of policy development activities, and appoints members to the ICANN Board of Directors.
Under the terms of the MoU signed between ICANN and the RIRs in October 2004, the NRO Number Council now performs the role of the Address Supporting Organization Address Council (ASO AC).
The regional policy forum of each RIR selects two members. The Executive Board of each RIR also appoints one person from its respective region.
