Annex A
Policy Proposal 2007-11

Refinement of ISP Initial Allocation Policy

Policy statement

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

In NRPM 4.2.4.3 (Initial Allocations to ISPs Policy), strike the
following sentence:

"When completing Section 7 of the ARIN ISP Network Request Template,
please keep this in mind"

Rationale:

Instructions on filling out templates properly belong in the
instructions attached to the template, not as part of a policy
statement. This reminder makes reference to an obsolete template and
section. ARIN released new templates in August 2006 and changed template
names, field numbers, and sections which made both of these references
obsolete.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
