In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN

The AC recommended the following to the ARIN Board of Trustees for adoption:

   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2015-5: Out of region use
   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2015-11: Remove transfer language which 
only applied pre-exhaustion of IPv4 pool

The AC accepted the following Proposal as a Draft Policy (it will be
posted for discussion):

   Draft Policy 2016-1 Reserved Pool Transfer Policy

The AC abandoned the following:

Draft Policy ARIN-2015-6: Transfers and Multi-national Networks

The AC stated, "The ARIN Advisory Council based on input from the 
community has voted to abandon ARIN 2015-6 Transfers and Multi-National 
Networks. The proposal was similar to ARIN 2015-5 Out of Region Use, 
which has completed last call and been recommended for Adoption.  The 
community feedback was to maintain the proposal as a secondary option, 
with 2015-5 as the preferred course of action."

The AC is continuing to work on:

   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-2: Modify 8.4 (Inter-RIR Transfers to 
Specified Recipients)
   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2015-3: Remove 30 day utilization 
requirement in end-user IPv4 policy
   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-7: Simplified requirements for demonstrated 
need for IPv4 transfers
   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-9: Eliminating needs-based evaluation for 
Section 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 transfers of IPv4 netblocks

The AC abandoned 2015-6. Anyone dissatisfied with this decision may
initiate a petition. The deadline to begin a petition will be five
business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes are published. For
