Draft Policy ARIN-2015-6
Transfers and Multi-national Networks

Date: 23 June 2015

Problem statement:

Some organizations within the ARIN region are currently unable to 
receive IPv4 space via transfer based on current ARIN policy, which 
prohibits address space used outside of the ARIN region from being 
considered efficiently utilized. This proposal would allow organizations 
with a strong and long-standing presence in the ARIN region to be able 
to receive number resources via transfer for their global operations.

Policy statement:

When evaluating transfer requests, ARIN will not consider the geographic 
location where an organization is utilizing its ARIN-registered 
addresses if that organization, its parent, or a subsidiary:

1. has been an ARIN customer for at least 36 months; AND

2. is currently in good standing with ARIN; AND

3. is currently using IPv4 or IPv6 addresses in the ARIN region; AND

4. can demonstrate it has a meaningful business that operates in the 
ARIN region.
