Draft Policy ARIN-2019-20: Harmonization of Maximum Allocation 
Requirements under Sections 4.1.8 (ARIN Waitlist) and 4.2.2 (Initial 
Allocation to ISPs)

Problem Statement:

Under the current ARIN waitlist policy (section 4.1.8), ARIN now only 
issues IPv4 assignments/allocations (excluding section 4.4 and 4.10 
space) from the ARIN waitlist. The maximum size aggregate for which an 
organization may qualify at any one time is a /22. On the other hand, 
the current initial allocations to ISPs policy (section 4.2.2) provides 
that direct assignments or allocations from ARIN qualify for an initial 
allocation of up to a /21, subject to ARIN’s minimum allocation size. 
This proposal seeks to resolve the conflict in the maximum allocation 
size requirements between the two sections in favour of the requirement 
in the waitlist policy, since that is the one that is intended to govern 
at the present time. Reconciling the policy language as proposed herein 
will avoid confusion by readers of the NRPM.

Policy statement:

Change the first sentence of section 4.2.2 to read:

“All ISP organizations without direct assignments or allocations from 
ARIN qualify for an initial allocation of up to a /22, subject to ARIN’s 
minimum allocation size.”

Timetable for Implementation: Immediate
