ARIN-2018-2: Clarification to ISP Initial Allocation and Permit Renumbering
Date: 20 March 2018
The criteria to qualify for an initial block of address space in 4.2.2
and 8.5.4 are at odds with each other.
Moreover, as the NRPM (2018-1) currently sits, 4.2.2 appears to state
that an initial allocation of up to a /21 could be granted without any
more justification than needed to qualify for a /24.
Replace the current Section 4.2.2 with:
4.2.2. Initial allocation to ISPs
All ISP organizations without direct assignments or allocations from
ARIN qualify for an initial allocation of up to a /21, subject to ARIN's
minimum allocation size.
All ISP organizations without direct allocations, direct assignments,
re-allocations or reassignments automatically qualify for a /24. These
organizations are exempt from requirements of showing efficient
utilization of previously held IPv4 space. These organizations may
qualify for a larger than a /24 by documenting how the requested
allocation will be utilized within the request size specified in 22.214.171.124
ISPs holding re-allocations and/or reassignments must show efficient
utilization of their resources consistent with the requirements in
sections 4.2.3 and 4.2.4
Timetable for Implementation: Immeddiate
This is an attmept to clarify the changes that came about from 2016-4.
It also aligns section 4.2 with current transfer policy.
It also also re-established the undertsanding that ISP can renumber and
retrun, but putting the last section 126.96.36.199.4 into the ISP additional
requests section. This text is slightly modified to include returns to
ARIN in addition to returns to the upstream.
