In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN 
Advisory Council (AC) met on 19 June 2014.

The AC recommended the following to the ARIN Board for adoption:

   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2013-7: NRPM 4 (IPv4) Policy Cleanup

The AC moved the following to last call:

   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2013-8: Subsequent Allocations for New 
Multiple Discrete Networks
   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-5: Remove 7.2 Lame Delegations
   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2414-12: Anti-hijack Policy
   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-13: Reduce All Minimum

The AC abandoned the following:

   Draft Policy ARIN-2014-3: Remove 8.2 and 8.3 and 8.4 Minimum IPv4 
Block Size Requirements
   Draft Policy ARIN-2014-8: Alignment of 8.3 Needs Requirements to 
Reality of Business
   Draft Policy ARIN-2014-11: Improved Registry Accuracy Proposal

The AC provided the following statements:

"The ARIN council voted to abandon 2014-3 Remove 8.2 and 8.3 and 8.4 
Minimum IPv4 Block Size Requirements for the following reasons:
  - Minimal support from the community
  - Substantial opposition expressed on list and at the PPM and PPC
The AC recognizes that there was some level of support expressed for a 
reduction in the minimum block size requirements, but did not find 
enough support to modify this proposal."

"The ARIN council voted to abandon 2014-8 Alignment of 8.3 Needs 
Requirements to Reality of Business:
  - The author has confirmed that he was amenable to the abandonment of 
the proposal.
  - There has been general consensus that this proposal is premature and 
makes changes to section 8.3 that could have significant unintentional 
policy changes.
  - Since the initial proposal a number of other proposals have 
addressed many of the concerns."

"The ARIN council voted to abandon 2014-11 Improved Registry Accuracy 
for the following reasons:
  - At the PPC staff noted they were working on changes to the RSA/LSRA 
that would address many of the issues brought up in the original proposal.
  - The community has not supported this proposal on list and at the PPC.
  - The proposal would require a significant overhaul to remove out of 
scope items that would effectively diminish the proposal."

The AC abandoned ARIN-2014-3, 2014-8 and 2014-11. Anyone dissatisfied 
with these decisions may initiate a petition. The deadline to begin a 
petition will be five business days after the AC's draft meeting minutes 
are published. For more information on starting and participating in 
petitions, see PDP Petitions at:
