*** Last Call: Policy Proposal 2002-5 *** 

2002-5: Amnesty Requests

If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or end-user,
relinquishes a block of portable address space to ARIN, they shall be
allowed to receive a block /24 or shorter, returning exchanged space
within 12 months, and they shall not be required to justify their use of
that space. That is, anyone should be able to decrease their use of
address space at any time without fear of the effects of a utilization
audit. ARIN staff shall, at their discretion, determine whether the
smaller replacement block shall be a subnet of the returned block, or a
block allocated from some different range. In the case of an
organization name change for address resource records, ARIN's normal
transfer policies will apply. If the exchanged address block was
maintained in the ARIN database without maintenance fees, the
replacement space shall be as well, but if the returned block had
associated maintenance fees, then the replacement block shall also be
subject to maintenance fees.
