Draft  Policy 2008-7
Identify  Invalid WHOIS POC’s

Date: 2 April 2009

Policy Statement:

During ARINs annual WHOIS POC validation, an e-mail will be sent to
every POC in the WHOIS database. Each POC will have a maximum of 60 days
to respond with an affirmative that their WHOIS contact information is
correct and complete. Unresponsive POC email addresses shall be marked
as such in the database. If ARIN staff deems a POC to be completely and
permanently abandoned or otherwise illegitimate, the record shall be
deleted. ARIN will maintain, and make readily available to the
community, a current list of number resources with no valid POC; this
data will be subject to the current bulk WHOIS policy.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
