[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.
