A new version of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) has been

At their meeting on 6 February 2009, the ARIN Board of Trustees adopted
2008-6: Emergency Transfer Policy for IPv4 Addresses. The Board delayed
implementation of 2008-6 pending the outcome of 2009-1.  2009-1 came
from the Board’s use of the Special Policy Action section of the ARIN
Policy Development Process. 2009-1 was first posted to Public Policy
Mailing List for discussion on 24 March 2009. It was presented at ARIN
XXIII in San Antonio. Based on the feedback from the community on the
PPML and at the Public Policy Meeting, the ARIN Advisory Council (AC)
created a revised version of 2009-1 and recommended their version to the
Board for adoption.

On 28 May 2009 the Board, based on the recommendation of the AC and
noting that the Policy Development Process had been followed, adopted
2009-1: Transfer Policy as amended by the AC. The Board directed staff
to implement the policy on 1 June 2009. The implementation of 2008-6 has
been replaced by 2009-1.

2009-1 will be presented at the next Public Policy Meeting for
reconsideration as required by the Policy Development Process (PDP Part
Two, Section 7.1).
