ASO and ICANN Accountability
The ICANN Empowered Community is the mechanism through which ICANN’s Supporting Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Committees (ACs) can organize, under California law, to legally enforce their community powers and hold ICANN accountable for its actions. As an ICANN SO, the Address Supporting Organization (ASO) and the NRO, participate in ICANN’s Empowered Community. The ICANN Bylaws also call for periodic reviews of the performance and operation of each SO by an independent entity.
