**Featured Policy Requirement**

Did you know that under NRPM 8.5.7: Alternative Additional IPv4 Address 
Block Criteria (https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html#eight57), if you 
are utilizing at least 80% of your currently allocated/assigned IPv4 
addresses, you may qualify to receive one or more transfers of IPv4 
addresses equal to your current holding (maximum of a /16 equivalent in 
any six-month period)?

**Tip from ARIN’s Registration Services Department**

Do you have an old reassignment/reallocation from an ISP you are no 
longer working with and would like it removed? Please review the 
documented process outlined on our website for the Removal of Stale 
Reassignment / Reallocation Records: 

**Tip from ARIN’s Financial Services Department**

Transfer Processing Fee (TPF): Invoice and Payment Facts

1. Each transfer request will be invoiced a $300 US fee, billed to the 
source (or legal successor) organization
2. Payment of the TPF is required before the review process can begin
3. The payment is non-refundable and does not guarantee approval of a 
transfer request
4. The TPF is waived when the subject resources are under an existing 
Registration Services Plan (RSP), and no specific transfer processing 
fee will be charged to the recipient-side organization for 8.3 and 8.4 
5. For each transfer approved, the recipient organization:
   -Must have an updated and executed Registration Services Agreement
   -May be subject to an initial fee(s)

Transferred resources are also subject to annual fees as stipulated by 
the Fee Schedule.
