Hi Lu,

>From ARIN's perspective (as I understand it) the answer is:

1. No, the RIR does not need to be notified, BUT...

2. If the new locations are no longer in ARIN territory, those
addresses are counted as unused the next time that organization wants
addresses from ARIN. As a result, the organization may not qualify for
more addresses.
