Independent GNSO Council Review
Article IV, Section 4 of the ICANN bylaws requires the ICANN Board to organise regular reviews of each Supporting Organisation, Council, and Advisory Committee. The review must be undertaken by an independent entity. In September 2004, the GNSO Council authorised Terms of Reference for an independent review of the GNSO Council in compliance with the bylaws requirement. In October 2004, the ICANN Board adopted the TOR and authorised the contracting of the independent reviewer. In accord with the TOR, this review is now submitted for public comment. The public comment forum will be open from 23 December to 24 January.
