Policy Proposal 2003-4: IPv6 Policy Changes
Author: ARIN Advisory Council
Policy term: permanent
A. 5.1.1(d), which currently reads: "d) have a plan for making at
least 200 /48 assignments to other organizations within two years"
will have the timeframe changed from "two years" to "five years".
B. 5.1.1(d) will have prepended "be an existing, known ISP in the
ARIN region or..."
These changes to the initial allocation criteria are to acknowledge
the slow pace of IPv6 deployment in the ARIN region. Also they further
stress the availability of IPv6 allocations to existing service
providers in the ARIN region.
The following is section 5.1.1 as it currently is in the ARIN IPv6
Address Allocation and Assignment Policy document:
5.1.1. Initial allocation criteria
To qualify for an initial allocation of IPv6 address space, an
a) be an LIR;
b) not be an end site;
c) plan to provide IPv6 connectivity to organizations to which it will
assign /48s, by advertising that connectivity through its single
aggregated address allocation; and
d) have a plan for making at least 200 /48 assignments to other
organizations within two years.
The ARIN IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy is available
Timetable for implementation: 30 days after ratification
