Draft Policy ARIN-2011-10
Remove Single Aggregate requirement from Specified Transfer

Date: 24 August 2011

Policy statement:

Modify Section 8.3 as follows: Change "can demonstrate the need for such 
resources, as a single aggregate, in the exact amount which they can 
justify under current ARIN policies" to "can demonstrate the need for 
such resources in the amount which they can justify under current ARIN 
policies"

Rationale:

The "as a single aggregate" has been interpreted to apply only to 
"demonstrate the need" as opposed to the resources which may be received 
by ARIN staff. It is possible that the original intent was to require 
than each transfer be of a single aggregate.

HOWEVER, as multiple Section 8.3 transfers may be executed serially by a 
pair of entities which wish to use the specified transfer policy in 
order to transfer any number of blocks as long as there is needs 
justification for each, it simply saves the transferring entity, the 
recipient, AND ARIN paperwork to allow a transfer of multiple blocks to 
proceed as a single transfer.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
