Example: Imagine a US based global company that has many international
subsidiaries. The company does real business both in the US, Canada, and
Caribbean as well as in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. The
corporate headquarters, majority of offices and employees are in the US.

base, network infrastructure, and revenue generation is within the ARIN
The company decides to offer their services as part of a global service
offering in a particular non-ARIN region country. Legal restrictions

providing network including the registration of Autonomous system number
used for peering.
The global IP address management team desires to maintain their ARIN
relationship, and prefers to request ARIN to create an OrgID for the
(non-ARIN service region) in-country legal entity, have ARIN assign an
ASN, and re-allocate IPs from the US entity that offers the service both

Legal entities can demonstrate a substantial connection to the ARIN
