ARIN-prop-142 Define RSA

Proposal Originator: Matthew Kaufman

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 2 May 2011

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Add to "Definitions" the definition of "Registration Services Agreement
(RSA)" -

A Registration Services Agreement (RSA) is an agreement entered into
between this Internet Registry and a Local Internet Registry or
End-user. The specific form of agreement is not defined in this document
and may differ in its specifics from one agreement to another. The
"Standard RSA" and the various forms of "Legacy Registration Services
Agreement (LRSA)" are examples of such an agreement.

Rationale:

The term "Registration Services Agreement" is used in 4.2.1.2 and 8.1
without definition. The term RSA is used in 4.6.5 and 8.3 without
definition.

ARIN staff has interpreted Registration Services Agreement in 8.3 (and
possibly other places) to mean "any registration services agreement"
rather than "a specific, standard, and unmodified Registration Services
Agreement". Readers of the NRPM have come to other conclusions.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
