Implementation Guidelines

The Principles on Freedom of Expression and Privacy (the “Principles”) have been created to provide direction and guidance to the Information and Communications Technology (“ICT”) industry and its stakeholders in protecting and advancing the enjoyment of these human rights globally. These Implementation Guidelines provide further details on how participating companies will put the Principles into practice. The purpose of this document is to: a. Describe a set of actions by which a company would demonstrate that it is implementing the Principles with improvements over time. b. Provide companies with direction and guidance on how to implement the Principles.

GNI Invites Broad Range of ICT Companies to Implementation Dialogue

The GNI is seeing a rapidly growing interest in how the GNI’s Principles and Implementation Guidelines can be adapted for other segments of the ICT industry. In response, the GNI has issued a new invitation to a wide selection of ICT companies inviting them to participate in the next meeting of the GNI Implementation Dialogue.
