Overview of proposed updates to the Operating Standards


The ICANN Bylaws call for the development of Operating Standards to provide guidance to review teams to conduct Specific Reviews efficiently and effectively.

 The ICANN organization is in the process of modifying the Draft Operating Standards based on public comments received on the October 2017 draft and on the Long-Term Options to Adjust the Timeline for Specific Reviews. Best practices and process improvements from Specific Reviews that were launched and/or conducted under the new Bylaws[1] are also being incorporated in the updated draft.


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
