Dear Colleagues,

Based on feedback received at the ARIN-40 conference, the AC Shepherds have updated Draft Policy 2017-4 - "Remove bidirectional requirement for inter-RIR transfers".

The proposal in its entirety is below.  We seek feedback and comment.

2017-4 - Remove bidirectional requirement for inter-RIR transfers

Problem Statement:
ARIN’s inter-RIR transfer policy is functionally one-way, so the assertion of a reciprocal two-way requirement is gratuitous.

Policy statement:
Add the following sentence after the first sentence of NRPM 8.4:
Inter-RIR transfers may take place only via RIRs who agree to the transfer and share compatible, needs-based policies.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate.
