Policy Proposal 2005-4: AfriNIC Recognition Policy

Author: Andrew Dul

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement: Remove section 4.8 entitled "Policy for the African
Portion of the ARIN Region" of the NRPM.

Rationale: The ARIN BoT recently suspended section 4.8 of the NRPM upon
recognition of AfriNIC as an RIR by ICANN.  Section 4.8 of the NRPM
applied only to areas of the ARIN region that are now covered by AfriNIC.

Timetable for implementation: Within 30 days of ratification by the BoT.
