Specific Reviews are an integral part of ICANN’s accountability mechanisms that derive from Article 4, Section 4.6 of ICANN’s Bylaws. Specific reviews are initiated by the ICANN Board, subject to timelines specific in the Bylaws. The reviews are conducted by review teams, composed of member of the ICANN community.
As mandated by the Bylaws, Section 4.6, the Operating Standards: ‘shall be developed through community consultation, including public comment opportunities as necessary that comply with the designated practice for public comment periods within ICANN.’
