In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council met on 18 July 2019.

The AC has abandoned the following Draft Policy:

* ARIN-2019-6: Longer Hold Time Requirements for 4.1.8 Recipients

Regarding Draft Policy ARIN-2019-6, the AC provided the following statement:

"At its regular monthly meeting on July 18th, the ARIN Advisory Council 
voted unanimously to abandon ARIN-2019-6, "Longer Hold Time Requirements 
for 4.1.8 Recipients”.

The sense of the AC was that in the wake of April's emergency policy 
recommendation in response to the January suspension of the waitlist 
(which revised the hold time for address space received via 4.1.8 
waitlist to 5 years), this policy proposal had been overtaken by events. 
  The author agreed, stating that it was his intention to stimulate 
discussion about longer hold times than the existing 12 months, and that 
he didn’t have strong opinions about how long such hold times ought to 
be, only that a year was not long enough.  Additionally, in the Staff 
and Legal review it was noted that the proposed policy statement has 
awkward interactions with the revised NRPM as it is currently worded as 
of Version 2019.2 of 10 July 2019.

Members of the community who strongly believe that the 5 year hold time 
for address space received via 4.1.8 waitlist ought to be some other 
interval are encouraged to submit a new policy proposal that addresses 
the language in the current NRPM."

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

The AC has advanced the following Draft Policies to Recommended Draft 
Policy status (each will be posted separately):

* ARIN-2018-6: Clarify Reassignment Requirements in
* ARIN-2019-1: Clarify Section 4 IPv4 Request Requirements

The AC advances Draft Policies to Recommended Draft Policy status once 
they have been fully developed and meet ARIN's Principles of Internet 
Number Resource Policy. Specifically, these principles are:

* Enabling Fair and Impartial Number Resource Administration

* Technically Sound

* Supported by the Community

The AC has advanced the following Proposal to Draft Policy status (will 
be posted separately for discussion):

* ARIN-prop-276: Returned Addresses to the 4.10 Reserved Pool

The AC advances Proposals to Draft Policy status once they are found to 
be within the scope of the Policy Development Process (PDP), and contain 
a clear problem statement.

The AC is continuing to work on:

Draft Policies:

* ARIN-2019-3: Update 4.10 – IPv6 Deployment Block
