Independent Review of the ICANN Address Supporting Organization (ASO) Published

ITEMS International, a Paris-based consultancy firm specializing in strategic consulting in the areas of telecommunications and the Internet, has published its findings of the ASO review.

The Number Resource Organization Executive Council (NRO EC), in communication with the ICANN Organizational Effectiveness Committee (OEC), commissioned the independent review of the ASO to determine whether:

– The ASO has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure, and if so, whether any change in the structure or operations of the ASO is desirable to improve its effectiveness in the ICANN structure.
– The ASO is accountable to the Internet number community when carrying out its responsibilities.

The review was conducted over a period of six months, between February and July 2017.

The report has been submitted to the ICANN OEC for a public comment period of 30 days ending on September 6th 2017.  Each RIR will also conduct regional consultations to consider the report’s recommendations.
