ARIN’s Strategic Plan calls for ARIN to recover costs in a fair and 
equitable manner via appropriate
fees to maintain adequate funds for the long-term stability of the
organization. ARIN has increased operating costs in recent years to meet
customer demand for improved and broader services, and upon review, the
Board of Trustees has called for both strategic cost management by the
organization and some fee increases in order to preserve long-term
organizational reserves.


The ARIN Board is proposing the following fee changes:

     * Increasing the annual registry maintenance fee paid by end users
for each IPv4 address block, IPv6 address block, and Autonomous System
Number (“ASN”) from $100 to $150 per object. Registration Services Plan
customers do not pay these annual registry maintenance fees as all
services are already covered in their plan.
     * Increasing the annual Legacy maintenance fee for each IPv4 address
block and ASN from $100 to $150 per object – i.e., the same change as
proposed for end-user maintenance fees. The Legacy maintenance fee is to
cover costs associated with Internet number resources held under a
Legacy Registration Services Agreement (“LRSA”). (Note also that some
very early LRSA agreements include a limit on the annual increase of
total maintenance fees; ARIN will implement any fee increase consistent
with the terms of those agreements.)
     * Increasing the initial and annual registration fee for ARIN
Transfer Facilitators from $100 to $1,000, in order to cover rising
costs associated with services.

We are seeking community feedback on these modifications to ARIN’s Fee
schedule that we intend to implement sometime mid-year 2018.

This consultation will remain open for forty-five (45) days, after which
time the Board will evaluate community feedback and determine
appropriate changes to the fee schedule.

Please provide comments to arin-consult at arin.net.

Discussion on arin-consult at arin.net will close on 25 May 2018.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info at arin.net.
