On 18 December 2009 the ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the
recommendation of the Advisory Council and noting that the Policy
Development Process had been followed, adopted the following number
resource policies:

   2008-3: Community Networks IPv6 Assignment

   2009-3 (Global Proposal): Allocation of IPv4 Blocks to Regional
Internet Registries

   2009-5: IPv6 Multiple Discrete Networks

   2009-6 (Global Proposal): Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)
Policy for Allocation of ASN Blocks (ASNs) to Regional Internet Registries

   2009-7: Open Access To IPv6

   2009-8: Equitable IPv4 Run-Out

A new version of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) has been
published to the ARIN website. NRPM version 2010.1 contains the
implementation of 2008-3, 2009-5, 2009-7 and 2009-8.

The two global proposals, 2009-3 and 2009-6, await the conclusion of the
Global Policy Development Process.

In addition to the policy actions above the NRPM was modfied as follows:

   Section 5.1 (an ASN subsection) was retired according to its built-in
expiration, "Section 5.1 will be removed from the first version of this
manual published after 1 January 2010."

   Several editorial updates were made to Section 6, the IPv6 section.
The IPv6 definitions were moved to Section 2 (Definitions). And the
References and Background sections were retired.

NRPM version 2010.1 is effective 13 January 2010 and supersedes the
previous version. See the Change Log for information regarding revisions
to the policy manual.
