Background & Mission Statement

The Business Constituency represents commercial users of the Internet. The Business Constituency is one of the Constituencies within the Commercial Stakeholder Group (CSG) referred to in Article X.5 of the ICANN bylaws. The Constituency's administrative structure is an elected Executive Committee supported by professional secretariat services and other standing or ad-hoc committees.

The mission of the Business Constituency is to ensure that ICANN policy positions are consistent with the development of an Internet that:

  • promotes end-user confidence because it is a safe place to conduct business
