'''Independent Review Panel (IRP)''' is a third-party review of Board actions operated by an international arbitration provider appointed. The IRP id in-charge in evaluating and determining if the actions, in-actions, decisions or resolutions made by the [[ICANN Board]] are contrary to the provisions of the Corporations Articles of Incorporation and/or By-Laws. An IRP is created whenever there is an allegation against the Board and the complainant requests for an independent review of the action or decision. Article 1V3, Section 3 IV of the ICANN Bylaws mandates the creation of an IRP, which is carried out by [[ICANN|Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers]] through its Independent Review Policy established in 2002.<ref>[http://www.icann.org/en/general/archive-bylaws/bylaws-15dec02.htm#IV ICANN Bylaws, Effective as of 15 December 2002]</ref> ==Background==The development of the Internet Review Policy began on March 1999. The initial [[ICANN Board]] appointed a 10-member [[Advisory Committee on Independent Review]] in-charge in developing the principles that will serve as structure for the implementation of independent review procedures in compliance with the ICANN Bylaws. On May 7, 1999, the Advisory Committee submitted its interim report with draft principles and addendum for public review and comment. The documents were publicly discussed during the ICANN meetings held in Berlin on May 26-17, 1999. After deliberations, the ICANN Board accepted the draft principles and the Advisory Committee were instructed to complete its task.<ref>[http://www.icann.org/en/committees/indreview/irac-interim-report.htm Interim Report of the Advisory Committee on Independent Review Posted May 7, 1999]</ref> <ref>[http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/minutes-27may99.htm#iracrecommendations ICANN Minutes of Meeting, May 27, 1999]</ref>
