As part of our continuing efforts to provide education and training to the
ARIN community, we have created new interactive flowcharts that document
how to interact with ARIN's Registration Services. The flowcharts that are
now available provide overviews on how an ISP can make its initial request
for the allocation of address space, how end-users can request
assignments, and how organizations can request Autonomous System Numbers
(ASNs). In addition, a fourth flowchart addresses how organizations can
request the transfer of Internet numbering resources.

Each flowchart starts with identifying the relevant policy and guidelines
documents and highlighting the policies under which organizations can
apply for resources. It then outlines the process of requesting resources,
interacting with ARIN regarding approval of your request, and continuing
on through payment of fees and renewal information.

You can highlight a step in the flowchart by moving your cursor over the
appropriate icon. You will then see information related to that part of
the process, as well as being able to go directly to relevant documents by
clicking on an icon.

Links to these flowcharts will be available on the applicable pages within
the Registration Services section of our website, as well as our Library
and Training sections. Or you can navigate to them directly at the
following URLs:

ISP Initial Request http://www.arin.net/library/training/isp_initial/

End-User Request

AS Number Request http://www.arin.net/library/training/asn_process/

Transfer Request http://www.arin.net/library/training/transfer_process/

These documents are only summaries. Complete information about the
policies and guidelines ARIN uses in allocating Internet numbering
resources can be found on our website under the Registration Services and
Policy sections.

We would enjoy hearing feedback about these flowcharts, so address any
comments to training at arin.net and include the name of the flowchart you
are providing feedback on. Please be aware that these interactive
flowcharts require that JavaScript be enabled within your browser. ARIN is
also working on creating more content, in a variety of formats, for an
upcoming "QuickStart" section on the website that will provide additional
guidance in interacting with ARIN.
