Draft Policy ARIN-2014-15
Allow Inter-RIR ASN Transfers

Date: 16 May 2014

Problem Statement:

We already allow transfer of ASNs within the ARIN region. Recently APNIC 
implemented a policy allowing for Inter-regional ASN transfers to RIRs 
with reciprocal policies. This change in language would allow for ASN 
transfers to and from the APNIC region.

Policy Statement:

Add "or ASNs to be transferred, as" to the first bullet point under 
Conditions on source of the transfer, so that it reads: "The source 
entity must be the current rights holder of the IPv4 address resources 
or ASNs to be transferred, as recognized by the RIR responsible for the 
resources, and not be involved in any dispute as to the status of those 
resources."

Change "IPv4 number resources" to "IPv4 number resources or ASNs", so 
that the fourth bullet point reads: "Source entities within the ARIN 
region must not have received a transfer, allocation, or assignment of 
IPv4 number resources or ASNs from ARIN for the 12 months prior to the 
approval of a transfer request. This restriction does not include M&A 
transfers."

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
