About ICANN Focus
ICANN manages the internet, albeit with varying degrees of
authority depending upon the subject area. The Center for Regulatory Effectiveness (theCRE.com) is a regulatory
watchdog which monitors, reports and intervenes in the regulatory process to ensure compliance with the "Good
Government" statutes which "regulate the regulators". Consequently, given CRE's watchdog role, CRE will begin
to report on, and intervene when appropriate, in ICANN proceedings.
The information on any website is no better than the reputation
and guiding principles of its "Anchor Site." The ICANN anchor site is that of the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness
(www.theCRE.com). CRE is an established and well-recognized
regulatory organization governed by former White House Office of Management and Budget officials
(CRE Advisory Board) with more than four decades
of regulatory experience (OMB Regulatory
Officials by Administration).
The CRE is a regulatory watchdog
(About the CRE) which works to ensure Federal agency
compliance with "Good Government Laws" including Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review,
Paperwork Reduction Act, Unfunded Mandates Act, Regulatory Flexibility Act and most recently the Data Quality
Act (Data Quality), of which CRE was the initial
proponent (CRE in the News).
