This paper considers the difficulties faced by the stakeholders in general requirements engineering (RE). These difficulties range from the complexity of requirements gathering to requirements presentation. Affordable visualization techniques have been widely implemented to support the requirements engineering community. However, no universal characteristics that could be associated with requirements completion have been identified so far. The research focus of this paper is driven by the above considerations to introduce the icon-based language comprising a set of icon notations, syntactic and semantics. Icon-based language would support the requirements engineering tasks that normally executed by stakeholders and provide a visual modelling language to unify the requirement activities. Research approach is recapitulate, firstly, by identifying the requirements engineering artefact, secondly by refining the icon artefact, and thirdly, by integrating those two artefacts by means of requirements engineering process. The result aimed at to make communications more interactive and manageable by facilitating the exchange of information and to promote global understanding in any requirements development context across cultural and national boundaries.
