*** Last Call: Policy Proposal 2002-6 ***
2002-6: Aggregation Requests
If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or end-user,
relinquishes a group of portable, non-aggregatable address blocks to
ARIN, they shall be allowed to receive a block in exchange, /24 or
shorter, but no more than the shortest block that could contain all of
the returned blocks. Exchanged space shall be returned within 12
months. For example, if an organization relinquished three /24s, they
should be allowed to take either a /24, a /23, or a /22 in exchange. If
all of the previous address blocks were maintained in the ARIN database
without maintenance fees, the replacement space shall be as well, but if
any one of the returned blocks had associated maintenance fees, then the
replacement block shall also be subject to maintenance fees.
