Policy Proposal 2003-4: IPv6 Policy Changes
The current IPv6 policies are described in the IPv6 Address Allocation
and Assignment Policy document.
It is proposed the IPv6 policy document be updated to include the
following language and that the changed document be adopted as policy.
[under d) add:
Other organizations are defined as any customer of the LIR.
No distinction will be made in terms of number of IP addresses
required, even if that number is one.
5.8 Allocation for Early Adopters
5.8.1 Waiver of criteria listed in 5.1.1 (d)
To promote the allocation of IPv6 space the requirement to make 200
/48 assignments within two years shall be waived for anyone
requesting IPv6 space before Dec 31, 2004 or until this policy
is amended. In the event that this policy is amended the
existing IPv6 space holders shall not be subject to new or
waived criteria for a period of 10 years from their initial
5.8.2 Waiver of fees
a) To promote the allocation of IPv6 space all IPv6 related fees
shall be waived until Dec 31, 2006 for anyone requesting and
receiving space before Dec 31, 2004. In the even that this
policy is amended the existing IPv6 space holders shall
under no circumstances be subject to waived or new fees until
Dec 31, 2006.
b) For billing purposes fees will be due according to normal
ARIN billing policies on Jan 1, 2007. All early adopters
will have the same billing date regardless of the date
they received their allocation.
5.8.3 Micro Allocations
a) To promote the allocation and deployment of IPv6 all the
criteria in 5.1.1 shall be waived to those requesting a /48
micro allocation before Dec 31, 2004, or until this policy
is changed. If this policy is changed, current space holders
shall not be subject to any new or waived criteria.
b) All fees shall be waived under the same rules listed in
c) Those receiving micro allocations shall not be allowed to
make further allocations or assignments out of their /48. It
is intended for their internal use only.
d) When possible those receiving micro allocations shall
return their allocation and receive a new /48 from their
upstream provider (a LIR). This is requested in a good faith
manner until Jan 1, 2007 at which time all micro allocations
granted under these waived criteria must be returned.
