The AC advances Proposals to Draft Policy status once they are found to

and suggested changes to Internet number resource policy text.

The AC has sent the following to the Board of Trustees for adoption 

* Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2017-5: Improved IPv6 Registration 

The AC provided the following statement:

"After a successful conclusion of the Last Call period, the ARIN AC is 
forwarding Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2017-5: Improved IPv6 
Registration Requirements to the ARIN Board with a request for adoption. 
Based on the consensus of the community at ARIN 40, the policy text was 
adjusted going into Last Call. While a minority dissent during Last Call 
period was in favor of the original text, the AC is of the view that the 
community thoroughly discussed that matter both at ARIN 40 and on PPML, 
and the consensus of the community supports the change in the text."

The AC is continuing to work on:

* ARIN-2017-3: Update to NPRM 3.6: Annual Whois POC Validation
* ARIN-2017-4: Remove Bidirectional Requirement for Inter-RIR Transfers
* ARIN-2017-8: Amend the Definition of Community Network
