A new version of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) has been 
published to the ARIN website. NRPM version 2011.4 is effective 27 
September 2011 and supersedes the previous version. NRPM 2011.4 contains 
the implementation of the following policies:

   ARIN-2010-14: Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements
   ARIN-2011-3: Better IPv6 Allocations for ISPs

In July we reported that 2011-3 would be implemented no later than 15 
February  2012, however, implementation work on this was started sooner 
than expected. As a result, we are happy to report that ARIN will now be 
able to accept requests under policy 2011-3 for IPv6 allocations ranging 
from /36 to /24. ARIN will continue working on the final stages of this 
implementation to enable allocations larger than /24, and expect it to 
be completed no later than 15 February 2012 as originally planned.

2010-14 was adopted by the ARIN Board of Trustees on 15 February 2011. 
2011-3 was adopted on 10 June 2011. Board minutes are available at:
