Public Comment: Revised Conflicts of Interest Policy
6 May 2009
A new public comment period opens today on the revised Conflicts of Interest
go through to the public comment period (open until 5 June 2009).
The ICANN Board initially adopted a Conflicts of Interest Policy on 4 March
1999, pursuant to ICANN Bylaws, Article V, Section 7, and Article VI,
The Board Governance Committee ("BGC") has responsibility for administration
of ICANN's Conflicts of Interest Policy. The Committee charter specifically
states that the BGC "shall periodically review the Conflicts of Interest
Policy and consider whether any modifications should be made to the policy
to improve its effectiveness." In furtherance of its role, the BGC has
reviewed and significantly revised the Conflicts of Interest Policy in order
to, among other things, remain current with legal disclosure requirements.
On 23 April 2009, the ICANN Board of Directors followed the BGC's
recommendation that the revised Conflicts of Interest
