Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2013-8
Subsequent Allocations for New Multiple Discrete Networks

Date: 4 March 2014

AC's assessment of conformance with the Principles of Internet Number 
Resource Policy:

"Subsequent Allocations for Additional Discrete Network Sites This 
policy enables fair and impartial number resource administration by 
documenting the current practice regarding allocations for additional 
discrete network sites. The ARIN staff has been following a procedure 
that has not been documented until now. By documenting this process the 
community has clear understanding of how to get address space for 
additional network sites.

This is a technically sound proposal that has been in practice for some 
time. It had just not been documented.

This proposal has received several notes of support on the PPML and to 
date has received no negative feedback."

Policy Statement:

IPv4:

Add the following statement to section 4.5.4.

Upon verification that the organization has demonstrated need at its new
discrete network site, the new networks shall be allocated the minimum 
allocation size under section 4.2.1.5 unless the organization can 
demonstrate additional need using the immediate need criteria (4.2.1.6).

IPv6:

Add an additional reference to section 6.11.5.b such that it references 
both the initial allocation and subsequent allocation sections of the 
IPv6 LIR policy.

"Each network will be judged against the existing utilization criteria 
specified in 6.5.2 and 6.5.3 as if it were a separate organization..."



Comments:

a. Timetable for implementation: immediate

b. This policy is being proposed based upon the Policy Implementation & 
Experience Report from ARIN 32.

c: Older versions of the MDN policy did contain new network criteria. 
This criteria appears to have been dropped during subsequent rewrites of 
the MDN policy. "The organization must not allocate a CIDR block larger 
than the current minimum assignment size of the RIR (currently /20 for 
ARIN) to a new network."
