Draft Policy ARIN-2011-6
Returned IPv4 Addresses

Date: 10 March 2011

Policy statement:

4.1.9 Returned IPv4 Addresses

Except where otherwise directed by policy; all IPv4 addresses returned
to, recovered, or revoked by ARIN will be made available for allocation
or assignment in the ARIN region as quickly as practicable.

Rationale:

Adopting this proposal will result in the clarification of the status of
returned IPv4 addresses. IPv4 address resources should not sit idle due
to lack of policy clarity.

Timetable for implementation: Immediately
