The ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP) allows for policy proposals to
be submitted at any time.

However, while there is no deadline, the PDP does contain several time
• Policy originators need time to think about and write policy proposals,
• ARIN staff needs time to conduct the Clarity and Understanding review,
• The AC needs time to make a decision and create draft policy,
• ARIN staff and legal counsel must be given time to perform staff
• And, draft policies must be posted to PPML at least 35 days prior to
an ARIN meeting to be considered for that meeting’s agenda.

Therefore, if you are considering submitting a policy proposal for
consideration for the October ARIN Public Policy Meeting, the sooner you
turn it in the better. Note that there are 15 proposals today in various
states of development, and, even though proposals received may not be
considered for the October meeting, they will be considered for the
April meeting.
