Policy Proposal 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 the gain in the number of addresses is greater 
than 4096, the aggregation request must be evaluated by the 
ARIN staff in accordance with the current IPv4 allocation 
policy.  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.
