President's Standing Committee on Privacy

Background

At its March 2003 meeting, the ICANN Board adopted the following resolution creating a President's Standing Committee on Privacy:

President's Standing Committee on Privacy

Whereas, ICANN's mission is to coordinate, at the overall level, the global Internet's systems of unique identifiers, and to ensure the stable and secure operation of the those systems, particularly domain names, Internet protocol addresses and autonomous system numbers; and protocol port and parameter numbers, as well as coordinating the operation and evolution of the DNS root name server system and policy development reasonably and appropriately related to these technical functions;

Whereas, although ICANN's mission does not encompass privacy issues generally, its existing policies and proposed policies being considered that relate to matters within the scope of its mission often have implications for personal privacy;

Whereas, the President and Board could benefit from the advice of a group responsible for monitoring the implications of existing and proposed ICANN policies on the handling of personal data;

Resolved [03.35] that the President is directed to appoint a President's Standing Committee on Privacy, to be responsible for monitoring the implications of existing and proposed ICANN policies on the handling of personal data. The President is directed, in consultation with the President's Standing Committee, to develop a detailed charter for the standing committee, and to submit it to the Board for its approval.

In response to this resolution, the President's Standing Committee on Privacy has been formed, comprised initially of the members listed below. As a first order of business, the committee is engaged in preparing a work plan, including plans for adding additional members.
