On May 25, 2006, the ARIN Advisory Council (AC) concluded its review of
the proposed policy 'Requirement for Reasonable Contract Terms' and did
not accept it as a formal policy proposal.

"It is the sense of the Advisory Council that this is a matter that can 
best be addressed by the ARIN Board of Trustees. The AC requests that 
the ARIN President refer the matter to the ARIN Board of Trustees."

During the initial review period the AC may decide to:
1)  Accept the proposal as a formal policy proposal as it is presented,
2)  Work with the author to clarify, divide or combine it with another
proposal, or
3)  Not accept the policy proposal.

In the event that the AC decides not to accept the proposed policy, then
the author may elect to use the petition process to advance the
proposal. For petition details see the section called "Petition Process"
in the ARIN Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process which can be
found at:

The deadline for the author to initiate a petition per the ARIN Internet
Resource Policy Evaluation Process is 40 days prior to the meeting; the
petition deadline for the ARIN XVIII Public Policy Meeting is September
1, 2006. If the author chooses not to petition or the petition is
unsuccessful, then the proposed policy is closed. If a petition is
successful, then the proposal will be numbered and posted for discussion
and presented at ARIN's Public Policy Meeting.

The proposed policy text can be found at:
