> Policy Proposal 2003-4: IPv6 Policy Changes
>
> Author: ARIN Advisory Council
>
> Policy term: permanent
>
> Policy statement:
>
> A. 5.1.1(d), which currently reads: "d) have a plan for making at
> least 200 /48 assignments to other organizations within two years"
> will have the timeframe changed from "two years" to "five years".
>
> B. 5.1.1(d) will have prepended "be an existing, known ISP in the
> ARIN region or..."
>
> Rationale:
>
> These changes to the initial allocation criteria are to acknowledge
> the slow pace of IPv6 deployment in the ARIN region. Also they further
> stress the availability of IPv6 allocations to existing service
> providers in the ARIN region.
>
> The following is section 5.1.1 as it currently is in the ARIN IPv6
> Address Allocation and Assignment Policy document:
>
> 5.1.1. Initial allocation criteria
>
> To qualify for an initial allocation of IPv6 address space, an
> organization must:
>
> a) be an LIR;
>
> b) not be an end site;
>
> c) plan to provide IPv6 connectivity to organizations to which it will
> assign /48s, by advertising that connectivity through its single
> aggregated address allocation; and
>
> d) have a plan for making at least 200 /48 assignments to other
> organizations within two years.
>
> The ARIN IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy is available
> here:

> http://www.arin.net/policy/ipv6_policy.html
>
> Timetable for implementation: 30 days after ratification
