Policy Proposal 119: Globally Coordinated Transfer Policy

Proposal Originator: Chris Grundemann, Martin Hannigan, Jason Schiller

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 11 October 2010

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement: Any RIR's member may transfer IPv4 addresses to the
member of another RIR as long as the two RIRs agree and exercise
Internet stewardship and the values expressed in RFC2050.

Rationale: Since individual RIRs now allow transfers, it makes sense to
be able to transfer between regions as well.

Timetable for implementation: upon ratification of all five RIRs

Timetable for de-implementation: upon change to this policy text in any RIR
