LACNIC operates based on a self-regulation model according to which the rules (policies) governing Internet resource administration are developed by the regional community through a public, participative and transparent process that is open to anyone who wishes to take part in it and built on consensus.
Open participation of all stakeholders ensures that these policies are in line with regional interests, thus safeguarding the community as a whole. Before being presented at the forums to seek consensus, all proposals are submitted and discussed on the policy mailing list.
