In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council (AC) met on 27 January 2017.

The AC has abandoned the following Draft Policy:

Draft Policy ARIN-2016-7: Integration of Community Networks into 
existing ISP policy

The AC provided the following statement:

"The Advisory Council decided to abandon ARIN-2016-7: Integration of 
Community Networks into existing ISP policy, due to a lack of support. 
There was no feedback from any community network operators, and this 
proposal raises the question whether the community network policy is 
still necessary."

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-2016-3: Alternative simplified criteria for justifying 
small IPv4 transfers
Draft Policy ARIN-2016-8: Removal of Indirect POC Validation Requirement
Draft Policy ARIN-2016-9: Streamline Merger & Acquisition Transfers
