== Structure ==
== DNSO Process ==
# The DNSO serves served in an advisory role to the [[ICANN Board]] and provides provided the Board with substantive policies related to the [[DNS]].
# The recommendations provided to the ICANN Board by the DNSO first needed to build a consensus before being submitted to the Board.
# All the recommendations made by the DNSO to the Board are were made open to all Supporting Organizations ([[SO]]s) so that they can could comment.
The ICANN Board accepts the recommendations of the DNSO only if it thinks that:
* The Board would not adopt any recommendation by the DNSO unless the votes, excluding those of the DNSO-selected Directors, are in favor of adoption by the Board
* If the Board is not satisfied with a recommendation then it can return it to the DNSO for further consideration, citing the reasons for its declination. If the DNSO still fails to make the policy acceptable, then the ICANN Board may initiate, modify or amend and then approve the recommendation.<ref name="link2">[]</ref>

Starting in 2003, the responsibilities of the DNSO were undertaken by the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO).<ref>[]</ref>
