>> ISPs automatically create POCs from their customer’s order form. This 
>> process is automated for many ISPs and therefore the resulting POCs 
>> are not validated prior to being created in the ARIN Whois database. 
>> This creates unknowing POCs that have no idea what Whois is or even 
>> who ARIN is at the time they receive the annual POC validation email. 
>> It can also create multiple POCs per email address causing that same 
>> person to receive a multitude of POC Validation emails each year.
>>
>> This policy proposal seeks to prevent the situation where a POC is 
>> unwittingly and unintentionally inserted into Whois. Doing so will 
>> reduce the significant amount of time that ARIN staff spend fielding 
>> phone calls from POCs who have no idea they are in Whois.
>>
>> The proposal will improve the overall POC validation situation, by 
>> ensuring that all reallocation or detailed reassignment requests are 
>> related to a pre-existing receiving organization with at least one 
>> valid POC object, and by requesting that any other existing invalid 
>> POC objects are validated.
>>
>> Policy statement:
>>
>> Insert one new section into NRPM 3:
>>
>> 3.7 POC Notification and Validation Upon Reassignment or Reallocation

>> When a request for reallocation or detailed reassignment is made to 
>> ARIN, the receiving organization must already be in the ARIN database 
>> and associated with at least one validated POC object. If there are 
>> no validated POC objects associated with the receiving organization, 
>> ARIN shall reject the request.
>>
>> In addition to notifying the requester, ARIN will also notify, via

>> Note: Simple reassignments are made without any linkage to an
