>> Draft Policy 2009-8
>> Equitable IPv4 Run-Out
>> Version/Date: 24 November 2009
>> Policy statement:
>> Rename NRPM;
>> Subscriber Members Less Than One Year
>> Replace NRPM with;
>> Subscriber Members After One Year
>> After an organization has been a subscriber member of ARIN for one year,
>> they may choose to request up to a 12 month supply of IP addresses.
>> When ARIN receives its last /8, by IANA implementing section,
>> the length of supply that an organization may request will be reduced.
>> An organization may choose to request up to a 3 month supply of IP
>> addresses.
>> This reduction does not apply to resources received via section 8.3. An
>> organization receiving a transfer under section 8.3 may continue to
>> request up to a 12 month supply of IP addresses.
>> Rationale:
>> This policy is intended to ensure an equitable distribution of IPv4
>> resources as run-out of the ARIN free pool occurs. This is achieved by
>> changing section of the NRPM to reduce the length of supply of
>> IPv4 resources that may be requested when the IANA free pool runs-out.
>> Equity is accomplished by reducing the window that an advantage or
>> disadvantage can exist between competitors, that will be created when
>> one competitor receives a final allocation just before run-out and
>> another competitor does not.
>> Further this policy ensures equity between incumbent resource holders
>> and new entrants by providing the same length of supply for each as the
>> ARIN free pool runs out. This eliminates a potential bias toward
>> incumbent resource holders that is created as a result of ARIN free pool
>> run-out interacting with resource allocation slow start for new entrants
>> in current policy.
>> This policy is similar to ideas in RIPE policy proposal 2009-03
>> (http://www.ripe.net/ripe/policies/proposals/2009-03.html), and has been
>> adapted by discussion and for use within the ARIN region.
>> This policy is intended to be independent of other policies or proposals
>> to reserve address space for IPv6 transition or other purposes. It is
>> not intended to limit Transfers to Specified Recipients per section 8.3
>> of the NRPM.
>> This draft contains the elements that there seems to have been the
>> largest consensus for on the floor of ARIN XXIV Public Policy Meeting in
>> Dearborn, Michigan. Further, there was a strong preference that no
>> changes be triggered until IANA free pool run-out.
>> Timetable for implementation:  Immediate
