As policy shepherd for DP-2014-2, I am interested in comments about the
problem statement, need and efficacy of language drafted. I have included

Asia over to APNIC. But because we had gotten a new block in 2013, we were
prevented from moving the old block to a different RIR.

months prior to the approval of a transfer request. This restriction does
not include M&A transfers. *Restrictions related to recent receipt of
blocks shall not apply to inter-RIR transfers within the same organization
and its subsidiaries.*
One comment has suggested that the clause '*and its subsidiaries*' opens
opportunity for abuse.......another comment attempting to mitigate this
possibility suggested the clause be modified as....'and its
Thank you for sharing your insights and for being part of the ARIN open,
bottom up, policy development process.
