The Board of Trustees has directed ARIN staff to contact, by certified 
letter [1], the CEOs of organizations that currently hold IPv4 resources 
in its region. The purpose of this effort is to raise executive 
awareness of the depletion of IPv4 resources and to encourage the active 
adoption of IPv6.

This letter will also serve as notification that, in response to the 
approaching depletion of the IPv4 free address pool, the Board has 
directed ARIN staff to take additional steps to ensure the legitimacy of 
all IPv4 address space requests.

Beginning 18 May 2009, ARIN will require that all applications for IPv4 
address space include an attestation of accuracy from an officer of the 
organization. For information on this requirement, please see:
