About the OECD Committee on Information, Computer and Communications Policy

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is a forum where the governments of 30 member countries work together with multiple stakeholders to address the economic, social, environmental and governance challenges of the globalising world economy, as well as to exploit its opportunities.

The OECD Committee on Information, Computer and Communications Policy (ICCP) develops policies to maximise the benefits of the Information Society. It analyses the evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and their social and economic implications, to provide comprehensive and forward-looking policy guidance to OECD members and non-members. The Committee:

  • Analyses pervasive and rapidly-changing technologies that challenge policy development and policy co-ordination.
  • Provides an active network of experts from government, business and civil society; and
  • Serves as a platform to monitor trends, share and test experiences, analyse the impact of technology on the digital economy, and provide policy guidance.

A number of OECD bodies will participate in the OECD-wide coordination effort in view of the 2008 Ministerial on the Future of the Internet Economy: the Public Governance Committee (PGC); the Committee on Consumer Policy (CCP); the Health Committee; the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI); the Environment Policy Committee (EPOC) of the Environment Directorate and the Development Assistance Committee (DAC). of the Directorate for Development.
