IP Policy Manual
Development of the IP Policy Manual
The issue of national Internet policies has gained increasing prominence in recent years as the importance of IP-based networks and IP-based services and applications (commonly referred to as "Internet') become increasingly apparent.

At its 5-16 May 2003 meeting, ITU Council discussed document C03/27 R1, which is the report by the Secretary-General, the Director of BDT, and the Director of TSB, concerning activities related to management of Internet domain names and addresses in accordance with ITU Plenipotentiary Resolutions 102 and 133. (See Summary Record of the Twelfth Plenary Session of Council 2003, 15 May 2003).

Council unanimously endorsed the ITU report and expressed its full support for ITU's initiatives to date. It further encouraged the efforts made by the Bureaux particularly in the areas of network security and internationalized domain names. Council also endorsed a proposal made by several countries for ITU‑T, in collaboration with ITU‑D, to develop an IP policy manual to advise Member States, especially developing countries, on the management of Internet domain names and related issues.

This web site contains the input contributions and output documents of the project team during the development of the Manual.

At its 12-22 July 2005 meeting, ITU Council decided to validate the work carried out by the project team and give its green light for the publication of the Manual. The final text is currently undergoing translation into the six official ITU languages and will be made available on this web site as soon as possible. TIES account required
