Governmental Advisory Committee

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers

The GAC serves as the voice of Governments and International Governmental Organizations in ICANN's multi-stakeholders representative structure.

Our key role is to provide advice to ICANN on issues of public policy, especially where there may be an interaction between ICANN's activities or policies and national laws or international agreements. We discuss issues with the ICANN Board and other ICANN Supporting Organizations, Advisory Committees and other groups and deliver regular Advice. About the GAC
