ICANN IRP Background
ICANN's IRP is a form of arbitration, which provides for independent
third-party review of ICANN actions alleged by an affected party to be
inconsistent with the Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws. The IRP is an
essential accountability mechanism to hold the ICANN Board and organization
accountable, and the seating of a Standing Panel to hear these claims is an
important component to achieve consistent, binding outcomes. ICANN
committed through its Bylaws that the ICANN community has a role in
identifying the final composition of the Standing Panel slate. Additional
information on the IRP Standing Panel is available here.
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.
