Hi everyone,

If you have feedback on this proposal please send it to this list.  We will
also be discussing the policy proposal at the upcoming PPC.


*Policy Proposal 2013-8 Subsequent Allocations for Additional Distrete
Network Sites*

*Problem Statement:*

During the ARIN 32 PPM, ARIN staff noted in the Policy Implementation and
Experience Report that the current Multiple Discrete Network Policy (MDN)
does not contain criteria for new sites of an existing MDN customer.

Current ARIN practice is to use the Immediate Need policy (NRPM

This policy proposal seeks to add NRPM text to clarify criteria for new
sites of existing MDN customers.

*Policy Statement:*


Add the following statement to section 4.5.4.

Upon verification that the organization has already obtained connectivity
at its new discrete network site, the new networks shall be allocated the
minimum allocation size under section unless the organization can
demonstrate additional need using the immediate need criteria (


Add an additional reference to section 6.11.5.b such that it references
both the initial allocation and subsequent allocation sections of the IPv6
LIR policy.

"Each network will be judged against the existing utilization criteria
specified in 6.5.2 and 6.5.3 as if it were a separate organization..."


a. Timetable for implementation: immediate

b. This policy is being proposed based upon the Policy Implementation &
Experience Report from ARIN 32.


c: Older versions of the MDN policy did contain new network criteria. This
criteria appears to have been dropped during subsequent rewrites of the MDN
policy. "The organization must not allocate a CIDR block larger than the
current minimum assignment size of the RIR (currently /20 for ARIN) to a
new network." (https://www.arin.net/policy/archive/nrpm_20041015.pdf)
