On 30 August 2006, the ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the
recommendation of the Advisory Council and noting that the Internet
Resource Policy Evaluation Process had been followed, adopted the
following policy proposal:

2005-9: 4-Byte AS Number

Per the implementation schedule contained in the policy (NRPM Section
5.1), commencing 1 January 2007, ARIN will process applications that
specifically request 32-bit AS Numbers. Templates will be available
online and they may be submitted prior to 1 January 2007 but will not
be processed until 2 January 2007 due to the holiday schedule.
