[arin-announce] LRSA Requirement Modified for 8.3 Transfers

Based on ARIN’s Public Policy Mailing List (arin-ppml at arin.net) 
discussion in February 2011 and concurrent interest from ARIN’s Board of 
Trustees, the procedure requiring a Legacy or standard Registration 
Services Agreement (Legacy RSA or RSA) for resources being transferred 
has been revised. Effective immediately, the transferor of legacy 
address space is not required to have the resources under a current 
registration services agreement with ARIN.

In the absence of a Legacy RSA or RSA, transfer requests may take longer 
than expected and/or not be completed at all, because the address holder 
must be verified and confirmed to be a valid transferor via the vetting 
process. Organizations with legacy resources are strongly encouraged to 
enter into a registration services agreement with ARIN prior to 
initiating a transfer to avoid these issues. Also note that in lieu of a 
Legacy RSA or RSA, ARIN requires an officer attestation from the 
claiming address holder in order to initiate the vetting process.

This procedural change was implemented in order to remove what some 
organizations may have viewed as a burdensome requirement in the 
specified transfer process.

Transfer process documentation on the ARIN website has been updated to 
reflect this procedural change. Additional reformatting and minor text 
edits were made to improve process clarity and to make it easier to 
complete the various types of transfers available in the ARIN region.
