In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council met on 15 August 2019.

The AC has abandoned the following Draft Policies:

* ARIN-2019-5: Validation of POCs Referenced as Abuse Contacts
* ARIN-2019-14: No Specified Transfers for Blocks

Regarding Draft Policy ARIN-2019-5, the AC provided the following statement:

"Due to a lack of support from the community, the AC abandoned work on
draft policy 2019-5 — Validation of POCs referenced as Abuse Contacts.”

Regarding Draft Policy ARIN-2019-14, the AC provided the following 

"The ARIN board recently adopted the AC's recommendation to re-instate 
the wait-list policy with a 60 month transfer restriction to blocks 
received from Feedback from the community did not support 
further extending the transfer restriction.  The ARIN Advisory Council 
has therefore abandoned draft policy ARIN-2019-14 for lack of support 
from the community.”

Anyone dissatisfied with these decisions may initiate a petition. The 
deadline to begin a petition will be five business days after the AC's 
draft meeting minutes are published.
