ICANN Submits Application to International Telecommunications Union for ITU-D Sector membership

LOS ANGELES – 28 February 2019 – Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced that it has applied for sector membership to the Telecommunication Development Sector of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-D).

“In order to effectively fulfill ICANN’s mission to ensure the stable and secure operation of the Internet’s unique identifier systems, ICANN must participate in discussions where its mission may be impacted,” said Göran Marby, President & CEO, ICANN. “After many years of successful collaboration and engagement with the ITU, we look forward to sector membership, as it could allow ICANN to help meet our responsibility and desire to lend our technical expertise to help ensure any deliberations are considered and informed with a full technical understanding of the consequences that they may have for the future of the Internet.”

The ITU-D fosters international cooperation and solidarity in the delivery of technical assistance and in the creation, development and improvement of telecommunication equipment and networks in developing countries. As it relates to ICANN, the ITU-D spends significant efforts on matters regarding Internet development, with special attention to international public policy matters and capacity building efforts.

Since ICANN’s formation in 1998, it has operated within a specific remit as a technical coordination body designed to ensure the security and stability of the Internet’s unique identifier systems. ICANN has always worked closely with technical partners around the world to fulfill its mission, and now must work more closely with governments and intergovernmental organizations as they tackle potential legislative and regulatory efforts that may impact ICANN’s mission or operations.
