Over the last several years, the community has been discussing ARIN 
policy regarding how reallocations and reassignments are made to 
downstream organizations. As a result of these discussions, two new 
policies will be implemented in the coming weeks. These new policies may 
impact you, your downstream customers, and your automated SWIP scripts 
or email templates for detailed reassignments and reallocations. The 
changes to our systems required by these policies will be deployed 
during our next release cycle, scheduled for the week of 30 March 2020, 
as previously announced.

When the community-driven policy changes ARIN 2017-12 and ARIN 2018-5 
are implemented, organizations will be unable to create Points of 
Contact (POCs) or Organization IDs (Org IDs) for organizations other 
than their own. A recipient organization must create an Org ID and POC 
with ARIN before receiving a reassignment or reallocation.

We have been working actively with community members to determine the 
best way to implement these policies because they have operational 
impacts for our customers. To assist our customers, we have published a 
detailed blog post that explains how these policies will change detailed 
reassignments and reallocations.


We encourage all of our customers who reassign/reallocate IP address 
space to their customers to review this blog post carefully, and to take 
advantage of the upcoming opportunity to test their automated processes 
prior to the implementation date.
