Draft Policy ARIN-2019-7: Elimination of the Waiting List
The ARIN “Unfulfilled Requests” policy (NRPM 4.1.8 et seq) creates an
opportunity for an ARIN member to claim need for number resources, wait
for those resources to become available via returns or reclamations,
acquire them, wait a year and a day, and then profit from them via a
Section 8.3 transfer.
In a post-depletion environment in which needs for additional number
resources are met via the secondary market, this policy provides
valuable number resources essentially for free, creating an opportunity
for windfall profits and incentivizing various kinds of
misrepresentation or manipulation of registration services.
ARIN can avoid this problem by abolishing the waiting list and
transferring returned and reclaimed resources to organizations that have
qualified via the existing 8.3 process.
Delete section 4.1.8. Unmet Requests as well as sections 220.127.116.11.
Waiting List and 18.104.22.168. Fulfilling Unmet Needs
Add policy section: 4.1.10 - Returned and Reclaimed Resources
ARIN will auction returned and reclaimed IPv4 number resources to
recipients qualified under Section 8.3. Revenues realized from this
activity will be allocated for purposes as directed by the Board of
Timetable for implementation: Immediate
The specific auction methods and implementation details used to
distribute the returned address pool are outside of the purview of the
Public Policy Process; they are intentionally left to the Board to sort out.
