Draft Policy ARIN-2017-13: Remove ARIN Review Requirements for Large
IPv4 Reassignments/Reallocations

Problem Statement:

ARIN review of large IPv4 reassignments or rellocations was put in place 
when ARIN had a free pool of IPv4 addresses. The main purpose of the 
review was to ensure that ISPs were following RFC2050 and ARIN policy 
for large blocks. Since there is no longer a free pool and blocks have a 
value through transfer, there is now a disincentive for ISPs to over 
assign blocks to downstream customers. Thus this policy is no longer needed.

Policy statement:

Remove Section of NRPM


Timetable for implementation: Immediate
