I do not support the new proposal, specifically the text "Only organizations holding a /20 or less of IPv4 address space may apply and be approved".  I would likely agree to it if there was an exemption for organizations that were on the list prior to the freezing of the list.  Those organizations applied properly and were approved and should be fulfilled with either their minimum acceptable block or be given the opportunity to receive the largest block that ARIN decides to allocate after the freeze is lifted.  Although ARIN can, I think it is unjust to drop those organizations from the list at this point.

Subject: [arin-ppml] Revised - Advisory Council Recommendation Regarding NRPM 4.1.8. Unmet Requests

At their 16 May meeting, the Advisory Council revised their recommendation regarding NRPM 4.1.8. Unmet Requests.

The revised recommendation is hereby submitted to the Public Policy Mailing List for a second community discussion period of 14 days, to conclude on 7 June.

Once completed, the Board of Trustees will review the AC’s recommendation and the PPML discussion.

The full text of the Advisory Council's revised recommendation is below.

Sean Hopkins
Policy Analyst
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Advisory Council recommendation:

This is an updated version which incorporates feedback from the ARIN staff and was approved for further community consultation at the ARIN AC meeting on May 16, 2019.

In accordance with section 10.2 of the ARIN Policy Development Process, the ARIN Advisory Council recommends the following actions to the Board of Trustees in response to the Board’s suspension of part of the operation of sections 4.1.8, and of the Numbering Resource Policy Manual:

Replace section 4.1.8 et. seq. as follows, then reinstate the full operation of sections 4.1.8, and immediately.

4.1.8 ARIN Waitlist

ARIN will only issue future IPv4 assignments/allocations (excluding 4.4 and 4.10 space) from the ARIN Waitlist. The maximum size aggregate that an organization may qualify for at any one time is a /22. Organizations will be able to elect a smaller block size than they qualify for down to a /24. Only organizations holding a /20 or less of IPv4 address space may apply and be approved. Address space distributed from the waitlist will not be eligible for transfer for a period of 60 months. This policy will be applied to all future distributions from the waitlist to include those currently listed.

Repeated requests, in a manner that would circumvent 4.1.6, are not
allowed: an organization currently on the waitlist must wait 90 days after receiving a distribution from the waitlist before applying for additional space. ARIN, at its sole discretion, may waive this requirement if the requester can document a change in circumstances since their last request that could not have been reasonably foreseen at the time of the original request, and which now justifies additional space. Qualified requesters whose request will also be advised of the availability of the transfer mechanism in section 8.3 as an alternative mechanism to obtain IPv4 addresses. Sequencing

The position of each qualified request on the waiting list will be determined by the date it was approved. Each organization may have one approved request on the waiting list at a time. Fulfillment

ARIN will fulfill requests on a first-approved basis, subject to the size of each available address block as address blocks become available for distribution. A timely review of the original request may be conducted by ARIN staff. Requests will not be partially filled. Any requests met through a transfer will be considered fulfilled and removed from the waiting list.
