Good day everyone,

I am seeking community input on *Draft Policy ARIN-2019-10: Inter-RIR
M&A *since the last post on this policy on May 21, 2019 there has not
been any conversation around it. As primary shepherd I need to have a
good sense of the direction that the community wants to take in
regards to this policy. As a starting point I would like to hear from
the community if it is thoght the policy is:

* Enabling Fair and Impartial Number Resource Administration
* Technically Sound
* Supported by the Community

   1. Draft Policy ARIN-2019-10 is below and can be found at:
   2. NRPM Version 2019.2 - 10 July 2019 can be found here:
   3. The Specific section of the NRPM affected by this policy can be
found here: https://www.arin.net/participate/policy/nrpm/#8-2-mergers-acquisitions-and-reorganizations

As a reminder please see the problem and the policy statements
Problem Statement:

Merger, acquisition, or reorganization activity sometimes results in a
restructuring where company resources, the management of number
resources, or the use of number resources are concentrated outside the
ARIN service region. In this case it may be desirable for the current
legal entity or a legal entity that is a parent, child or sister to move
the servicing of the number resources to a different RIR.

Policy Statement:
*Add to section 8.2:*

When merger, acquisition, or reorganization activity results in
surviving legal entity that is incorporated outside the ARIN service
region, or focused outside the ARIN service region, or is merging with
an organization that already has a relationship with another RIR, then
resources may be moved to another RIR in accordance with the receiving
RIR’s policies.

I look forward to hearing more from everyone on this policy.

Warm regards
