Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2016-3: Alternative simplified criteria
for justifying small IPv4 transfers
AC's Statement of Conformance with ARIN's Principles of Internet Number
This proposal is technically sound and enables fair and impartial number
policy by allowing transfers to specified recipients of blocks of a
certain size to occur without a needs assessment performed by ARIN
staff. The Staff and Legal Assessment raised no material issues, and
there has been consistent support on both the mailing list and at the
Dallas ARIN meeintg for incorporating this mechanism into NRPM.
ARIN transfer policy currently inherits all its demonstrated need
requirements for IPv4 transfers from NRPM sections 4. Because that
section was written primarily to deal with free pool allocations, it is
much more complicated than is really necessary for transfers.
This proposal allows organizations using 80% of their current space to
double their current holdings via 8.3 or 8.4 specified transfers, up to
a /16 equivalent.
Add a new section:
8.5.7 Alternative Additional IPv4 Address Block Criteria
In lieu of 8.5.5 and 8.5.6, organizations may qualify for additional
IPv4 address blocks by demonstrating 80% utilization of their currently
allocated space. If they do so, they qualify to receive one or more
transfers up to the total size of their current ARIN IPv4 address
holdings, with a maximum size of /16.
An organization may qualify via 8.5.7 for a total of a /16 equivalent in
any 6 month period.
