||Operating Standards, Specific Reviews
||The goal of the Bylaws-mandated Operating Standards (see Section 4.6) is to provide for a transparent and consistent review process by documenting rules and procedures. Please note, most procedures detailed in the draft Operating Standards are either based on existing best practices, or on processes that have been adapted from comparable procedures already in existence elsewhere within ICANN. This draft has been prepared taking into account best practices from past and current reviews, and community input received throughout several public consultations. There will be a webinar held on Thursday 19 October 2017 at 21:00 UTC to provide context to the latest draft and allow for an initial Q&A session.
