The GNSO Operating Procedures mandate the filing of a Statement of Interest by any person who wishes to participate in a GNSO Working Group (including all GNSO Policy Development Processes). A Statement of Interest is currently defined as “a written statement made by a Relevant Party that provides a declaration of interests that may affect the Relevant Party's judgment, on any matters to be considered by the GNSO Group.” 

It is important for you to note that all Statements of Interest collected are publicly accessible through their display on the ICANN Community Wiki . This is done in furtherance of ICANN’s commitment, as specified in ICANN’s Bylaws, for ICANN and its constituent bodies (including the GNSO) to “operate to the maximum extent feasible in an open and transparent manner and consistent with procedures designed to ensure fairness”.

By submitting your personal data, you are agreeing that your personal data will be processed in accordance with the ICANN Privacy Policy (, and agree to abide by the website Terms of Service (

GNSO Support staff are on hand to assist if members run into difficulties completing their statements.
