A new version of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) has been
published to the ARIN website. NRPM version 2012.1 is effective 30
January 2012 and supersedes the previous version. NRPM 2012.1 contains
the implementation of the following policies:

    ARIN-2011-3: Better IPv6 Allocations for ISPs
    ARIN-2011-8: Combined M&A and Specified Transfers
    ARIN-2011-10: Remove Single Aggregate requirement from Specified 

In September we reported that 2011-3 had been partially implemented to
allow IPv6 allocations up to and including /24s. 2011-3 is now fully
implemented to allow larger allocations in accordance with the policy.

2011-3 was adopted by the ARIN Board of Trustees on 10 June 2011. 2011-8
and 2011-10 were adopted on 16 December 2011. Board minutes are
available at:
