On Tuesday, 29 May, ARIN opened a consultation with the community
regarding a revised Policy Development Process (PDP) for Internet number
resource policy development in the ARIN region.

Significant changes in this revision of the PDP include:

*   Improved PDP process scope definition
*   Clarified principles for good number resource policy (fairness,
technical soundness, community support, etc.)
*   Clarified Board criteria for developed policy ratification
*   New initial policy proposal review by the ARIN Advisory Council (AC)
*   Smoother transition from policy proposal to draft policies upon
successful initial review
*   Added requirement for the AC to provide a full explanation of any
policy action taken
*   One petition per policy action; if successful, petitioners mutually
select the presenter of the draft policy at Public Policy Meetings

The above changes will have a significant impact on how community
members participate in the PDP, and how policy proposals are seen
through to fruition. We urge all community members to view the text of
the revised Policy Development Process at:
