ARIN-prop-159 IPv6 Subsequent Allocations Utilization Requirement

Proposal Originator: Aaron Hughes

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 21 November 2011

Proposal type: modify

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

NRPM section 2.16 Utilized (IPv6)

Add:

3. Tie down blocks shall be considered fully utilized, for the purpose 
of subsequent allocations, when the first reassignment is made from the 
tie down pool. (e.g. a /36 tie down for customer /48s will be considered 
utilized for subsequent allocations once the first /48 is assigned from 
the /36).

Rationale:

If you are executing to a long term plan, you should be able to continue 
to execute on your approved allocation and assignment plan regardless of 
the number of regions/groupings you originally planned for. We want to 
promote tie downs on nibbles and long term planning.

Timetable for implementation: Immediately
