On 3 February 2012 the ARIN Board of Trustees adopted the following 
policies:

   ARIN-2011-11: Clarify Justified Need for Transfers
   ARIN-2011-12: Set Transfer Need to 24 months

These policies are being implemented today.

A new version of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) has been
published to the ARIN website. NRPM version 2012.2 is effective 10 
February 2012 and supersedes the previous version. NRPM 2012.2 contains
the implementation of ARIN-2011-11 and ARIN-2011-12.

Please note that the policy for Specified Transfers (NRPM 8.3) has 
changed. Organizations requesting address space via specified transfers 
can now request up to a 24-month supply. For more information, please
