Draft Policy ARIN-2019-4: Allow Inter-regional IPv6 Resource Transfers

Problem Statement:

There is an operational need to allow RIR transfers of IPv6 resources 
between RIRs with an equivalent transfer policy. ARIN’s RPKI Trust 
Anchor (TA) is measurably less widely deployed than TAs from other RIRs. 
As a consequence, RPKI ROAs published through ARIN offer less value. 
Operators seeking to extract the most value from their investment in 
IPv6 would benefit from the ability to transfer IPv6 resources to RIRs 
with more widely deployed RPKI Trust Anchors.

Policy Statement:

Change the first sentence in section 8.4 from:

“Inter-regional transfers of IPv4 number resources and ASNs may take 
place only via RIRs who agree to the transfer and share reciprocal, 
compatible needs-based policies.”

To:

“Inter-regional transfers of Internet number resources may take place 
only via RIRs who agree to the transfer and share reciprocal, compatible 
needs-based policies.”

Comments:

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
