Just a quick stab at it then:

Through their respective chosen policies and strategies, each RIR will
recover unused, misallocated and voluntarily returned IPv4 address
space under their administration from their registrants. Where the
RIR's policies authorize returning said IPv4 address space to IANA,
the RIR shall set the address space aside and designate it for return
