The Irish Information Society Commission (ISC) was established in 2001. It was an independent advisory body to the Irish Government, reporting directly to the Taoiseach. It drew on high-level representation from the business community, the social partners, and government itself. The ISC had a key role in shaping the evolving public policy framework for the Information Society in Ireland. It contributed to the policy formulation process, monitored progress, and highlighted issues that needed to be prioritized. The Commission served until the end of 2004.
