Policy Proposal Name: Resource Renewal and Verification

Author: Owen DeLong
	
Proposal Version: 0.0.1

Submission Date: 4/24/07

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent
	
Policy statement:

   At any time after a resource is allocated or assigned, ARIN staff may
audit the usage of the resource to verify that it is in compliance with
the policies under which it was issued and the RSA which governs its use.

   Should the staff develop reason to believe that such usage no longer
meets ARIN policy, ARIN shall immediately notify the appropriate POCs
and attempt to resolve the issue.  Should the issue not be resolved to
ARIN's satisfaction, ARIN shall have the option of not renewing the
effected resources at the next renewal of the organization.

   If renewal is not at least 90 days out when the POC is notified of
ARIN's decision not to renew, a 90 day grace period shall be granted.

Any decision not to renew may be appealed to the BoT who shall act an
the appeal within 30 days.  The decision of the BoT shall be final.

Rationale:

   It was my understanding that ARIN staff already had this option.
However, it is not clear in policy that such an option exists. Codifying
this ability will prevent fraud and reduce the likelihood of resources
being obtained under false pretense.  For example, a claim was made at a
policy meeting that organizations can/do apply under the multi-home
policy, then become single-homed and remain single-homed, essentially
doing an end-run on the multi-home policy.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
