Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2019-15: Hijacking Authorization Not-intended

AC Assessment of Conformance with the Principles of Internet Number 
Resource Policy:

The Advisory Council has moved ARIN-2019-15 to recommended draft status. 
This recommended draft increases the clarity around the accepted 
practices for reassignments and reallocations. The draft has been 
supported by the community, is technically sound, and furthers the goal 
of impartial and fair number administration.

Problem Statement:

The current text of Section 2.5 of the NRPM could be interpreted as 
implicitly giving incidental or transient users of IPv6 address space 
the ability to use that space without the authorization of the 
organization to which the space is delegated. This policy makes it clear 
that such third-party use must be authorized by the organization to 
which the address space is delegated.

Policy Statement:

Present Text

Note that the incidental or transient use of address space by third 
parties shall not be considered a reassignment or a violation of the 
exclusive use criterion.

Proposed Text

Note that the authorized incidental or transient use by third parties of 
address space delegated to an organization shall not be considered a 
reassignment or a violation of the exclusive use provision.

Comments: N/A

Timetable for implementation: Immediate

Anything Else: The proposed text is consistent the intent expressed by 
similar polices of other RIRs.
