ARIN received the following policy proposal and is posting it to the
Public Policy Mailing List (PPML) in accordance with Policy Development

This proposal is in the first stage of the Policy Development Process.
ARIN staff will perform the Clarity and Understanding step. Staff does
not evaluate the proposal at this time, their goal is to make sure that
they understand the proposal and believe the community will as well.
Staff will report their results to the ARIN Advisory Council (AC) within
10 days.

The AC will review the proposal at their next regularly scheduled
meeting (if the period before the next regularly scheduled meeting is
less than 10 days, then the period may be extended to the subsequent
regularly scheduled meeting). The AC will decide how to utilize the
proposal and announce the decision to the PPML.

In the meantime, the AC invites everyone to comment on the proposal on
the PPML, particularly their support or non-support and the reasoning
behind their opinion. Such participation contributes to a thorough
vetting and provides important guidance to the AC in their deliberations.

Policy Proposal Name: Sunset Clause for Liberalized Transfer Policy

Proposal Originator: Owen DeLong

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 4 June 2009

Proposal type: delete

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Section 8.3, "Transfers to Specified Recipients", of the NRPM is
deleted upon the effective date of this policy.


When the community reached consensus in   support of 2008-6, it
contained a sunset clause.   In the process of developing 2009-1,
the sunset clause was removed. The effect of this policy proposal is
to restore the sunset clause while adopting a more rational date at
which to sunset the policy.

Timetable for implementation:

31 December, 2013
3 years after IANA issues the last /8s to the RIRs,
whichever is later.
