Organizational Reviews* assess the effectiveness of ICANN’s supporting organizations and advisory committees. Organizational Reviews are conducted by independent examiners to assess: (i) whether that organization, council or committee has a continuing purpose in the ICANN structure; (ii) if so, whether any change in structure or operations is desirable to improve its effectiveness; (iii) whether that organization, council or committee is accountable to its constituencies, stakeholder groups, organizations and other stakeholders.

The second Nominating Committee Review (NomCom2) implementation work led by the Review Implementation Working Group (NomComRIWG) was considered complete in June 2022. The Board took action on 16 March 2023 to accept the status of the NomCom2 Review implementation and initiate an ICANN Bylaws Amendment process. On 10 September 2023 the Board took action on next steps in Bylaws Amendment Process. The Board took action on 12 June 2022 to defer the Third Review of the Nominating Committee.
