[arin-ppml] IANA advice re: Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation

I wanted to advise the community, and seek its input on the question of
when IANA should make its first allocation from the Recovered IPv4 Pool.

It seems some read the global policy and conclude that the Recovered IPv4
Pool becomes active immediately after one RIR dipping below a /9 of
inventory and IANA should straight away
make an allocation and then make its next allocation after crossing the
next 6-month period starting on March 1st or September 1st.

It seems some read the global policy and conclude that the IANA should make
its first allocation from the after crossing the next 6-month period
starting on March 1st or September 1st after one RIR dipping below a /9 of
inventory.

In short should IANA make an allocation after one RIR dipping below a /9 of
inventory or should it wait until the next 6-month period opens up?

Below is the email we have received regarding this question:

Dear Louie,

As you chair the ASO AC, I am seeking your guidance on the
interpretation of the Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation
Mechanisms by the IANA, which was ratified in May 2012.

The global policy defines states that "Allocations from the IANA may
begin once the pool is declared active." It is not clear whether this
means that allocation from the Recovered IPv4 Pool should be made
straight away or whether they should happen at the start of the next
"IPv4 allocation period," the "6-month period following 1 March or 1
September."

We hope you can advise us on the intended meaning of this sentence, so
that we can implement the policy appropriately.

We look forward to receiving your response on this question of
interpretation of the Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation
Mechanisms by the IANA.

Kind regards,

Leo Vegoda
ICANN
