As the primary shepherd of draft policy ARIN-2011-7: Compliance
Requirement, I took your feedback from the Public Policy Meeting in
Philadelphia and revised the text. I believe that this new text
continues to meet the originators intentions while also addressing all
significant concerns raised thus far. Please let me know what you
think. If there are no major objections from the community here, I
plan to recommend this policy for last call at the next AC meeting.

New text:


12.4 - Update to:
Organizations found by ARIN to be out of compliance with current ARIN
policy shall be required to update reassignment information or return
resources as needed to bring them into (or reasonably close to)
1. The degree to which an organization may remain out of compliance
shall be based on the reasonable judgment of the ARIN staff and shall
balance all facts known, including the organization's utilization
rate, available address pool, and other factors as appropriate so as
to avoid forcing returns which will result in near-term additional
requests or unnecessary route de-aggregation.
2. To the extent possible, entire blocks should be returned. Partial
address blocks shall be returned in such a way that the portion
retained will comprise a single aggregate block.

12.5 - Update to:
Except in cases of fraud when immediate action can be taken, an
organization shall be given thirty (30) days to respond. If an
organization fails to respond within thirty (30) days, ARIN may cease
providing reverse DNS services to that organization. If progress of
resource returns or record corrections has not occurred within sixty
(60) days after ARIN initiated contact, ARIN shall cease providing
reverse DNS services for the resources in question. At any time ninety
(90) days after initial ARIN contact, ARIN may initiate the revocation
of any resources issued by ARIN as required to bring the organization
into overall compliance. ARIN may permit a longer period of time to
come into compliance, if ARIN believes the organization is working in
good faith to restore compliance with policy and has a valid need for
additional time to comply, including but not limited to renumbering
out of the affected blocks. ARIN shall follow the same guidelines for
revocation that are required for voluntary return in the previous

(leave 12.6 as is)
