In accordance with the ARIN Policy Development Process (PDP), the ARIN
Advisory Council (AC) met on 17 December 2015.

Having found the following Draft Policy to be fully developed and
meeting ARIN's Principles of Internet Number Resource Policy, the AC
recommended it for adoption (to be posted separately for discussion as a 
Recommended Draft Policy):

   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-11: Remove transfer language which only 
applied pre-exhaustion of IPv4 pool

The AC abandoned the following:

   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-8: Reassignment records for IPv4 End-Users

The AC provided the following statement, "The ARIN AC has voted to 
abandon draft proposal ARIN-2015-8. Although a number of participants at 
ARIN 36 and on the PPML indicated support for investigation of greater 
harmonization of the services provided by ARIN to ISPs and End-Users, 
this specific proposal had no substantial community
support. In fact, those who addressed themselves to the specific 
proposal, rather than broader issue of fees charged to ISPs vs. 
End-users or the types of services that ARIN should provide to each 
class of clients, did not support the specific proposal itself. Based on 
community feedback, we would suggest the broader issues be considered by 
ARIN, as part of a review of services."

The AC is continuing to work on:

   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-2: Modify 8.4 (Inter-RIR Transfers to 
Specified Recipients)
   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-3: Remove 30 day utilization requirement in 
end-user IPv4 policy
   Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2015-5: Out of region use
   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-6: Transfers and Multi-national Networks
   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-7: Simplified requirements for demonstrated 
need for IPv4 transfers
   Draft Policy ARIN-2015-9: Eliminating needs-based evaluation for 
Section 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 transfers of IPv4 netblocks

The AC abandoned 2015-8. Anyone dissatisfied with this decision 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
