Recognizing that the set of documents that state and describe the various
ARIN Internet Number Resource policies is not organized in a single
useable fashion, the ARIN Board of Trustees, at its meeting of 3 August
2004, adopted a strategy and accompanying schedule to collate these
documents into a single document. The ARIN staff prepared the document.
The ARIN Advisory Council reviewed the document to ensure that all
existing policies were present in the new document, that they were
correctly stated, and that no inadvertent changes had been introduced in
the collation process. The ARIN Advisory Council, at their 27 September
2004 meeting, recommended that the document be adopted by the ARIN Board
of Trustees. The ARIN Board of Trustees, at their 29 September 2004
meeting, adopted the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual.

Effective 15 October 2004, the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual is the
official ARIN policy document.

According to the strategy adopted by the ARIN Board of Trustees, all of
the previous versions of ARIN policies have been archived.

The Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) can be found at:


The NRPM will be version controlled. The original version is 2004.1. A new
version will be issued as policies are added, modified or deleted.  All
activity will be recorded in Appendix A of the document. Previous versions
of the NRPM will be archived.
