In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council (AC) met on 05 April 2017.

The AC has advanced the following Recommended Draft Policies to Last 
Call (each will be posted separately):

* ARIN-2016-3: Alternative Simplified Criteria for Justifying Small IPv4 

* ARIN-2016-9: Streamline Merger & Acquisition Transfers

The AC has advanced the following Proposal to Draft Policy status (will 
be posted for discussion):

* ARIN-prop-236: Remove Reciprocity Requirement for Inter-RIR Transfers

The AC advances Proposals to Draft Policy status once they are found to 
be within the scope of the PDP, and contain a clear problem statement 
and suggested changes to Internet number resource policy text.

The AC abandoned the following:

Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2016-8: Removal of Indirect POC Validation 

The AC provided the following statement:

"The AC abandoned Draft Policy ARIN-2016-8 for lack of support by the 
ARIN community. The AC believes Whois data issues raised in this policy 
should continue to be discussed and a new draft policy may emerge as a 
result of that work that better addresses community concerns."

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.

The AC is continuing to work on:

* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-1: Clarify Slow Start for Transfers

* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-2: Removal of Community Networks

* Draft Policy ARIN-2017-3: Update to NPRM 3.6: Annual Whois POC Validation

* ARIN-prop-235: Clarify Generic References to "IP Addresses" in NRPM
