Policy Proposal 2002-5: Amnesty Requests 

If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or 
end-user, relinquishes a larger block of portable address 
space to ARIN, they shall be allowed to receive a smaller 
block, /24 or shorter, in exchange. The organization will 
not be required to justify their use of the new, smaller 
block. The organization must return the block to be 
exchanged within 12 months. 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. If any of the relinquished blocks 
had associated maintenance fees, then the new block will be 
subject to the appropriate fees for that block size. 
Likewise those without maintenance fees shall remain so.
