Policy Proposal 2002-5

If the organization is asked to relinquish a block as a result of an util
audit ,then they must justify the use of the smaller block and they must be
accountable for that.If an Org relinquishes a block by its own discretion
,then they should be  allowed to have an opportunity to use a small block as
they wish...

Policy Proposal 2002-5: Amnesty Requests

If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or end-user,
relinquishes a block of address space to ARIN, they shall be allowed to
select any smaller size of block in exchange, and shall not be required
to justify their use of that space.  That is, anyone should be able to
decrease their use of address space at any time without fear of the
effects of a utilization audit.  ARIN staff shall, at their
discretion, determine whether the smaller replacement block shall be a
subnet of the returned block, or a block allocated from some different
range.  In the case of an organization name change for address resource
records, ARIN's normal transfer policies will apply.
