It is not necessary for ARIN to explain or maintain fixed audit
procedures in order to
provide guidance.

They should provide details about what level of documentation resource
holders are recommended to have available  for their inspection.

For example "Be able to identify the name, address, contact details,
and show a signed contract"  of the customer to which each address
assignment is made."

"Be prepared to have an ARIN staff member visit your site to count
number of devices, or visually inspect your routers and review the
configuration with you,   to verify the network engineering."

That in no way reveals exactly what will actually be requested.
