In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council met on 19 September 2019.



The AC has abandoned the following Draft Policies:

* ARIN-2019-4: Allow Inter-regional IPv6 Resource Transfers
* ARIN-2019-9: Clarify Interactions Between NRPM 4.10 IPv6 Transition 
Space Requests and NRPM 4.1.8.2 Unmet Needs Requests
* ARIN-2019-11: M&A Regional Nexus Exclusion

Regarding Draft Policy ARIN-2019-4, the AC provided the following statement:

"ARIN-2019-4: Allow Inter-regional IPv6 Resource Transfers, involves 
mostly the same issues as ARIN-2019-10: Inter-RIR M&A. Further, 
ARIN-2019-10 seems to have a better formulation of the issues involve, 
and the discussion of these issues by the ARIN community has 
concentrated on ARIN-2019-10 instead of ARIN-2019-4. The ARIN Advisory 
Council has therefore abandoned Draft Policy ARIN-2019-4 in order to 
simplify and focus the discussion on ARIN-2019-10 at the upcoming ARIN 
44 meeting, and encourages the ARIN community to continue discussing 
these issues through ARIN-2019-10.”

Regarding Draft Policy ARIN-2019-9, the AC provided the following statement:

"ARIN-2019-9: The ARIN Advisory Council has abandoned Clarify 
Interactions Between NRPM 4.10 IPv6 Transition Space Requests and NRPM 
4.1.8.2 Unmet Needs Requests. Staff and legal review provided important 
insight into potential issues which "may be detrimental to some 
organizations, as address space received per NRPM 4.10 must be used in a 
manner consistent with IPv6 translation services and cannot be used for 
other purposes such as customer assignments, shared hosting services, 
etc." The ARIN community expressed concern for the potential impacted 
parties and therefore, the policy no longer has support from the 
community. Therefore, we are abandoning 2019-9 for lack of support from 
the community.”

Regarding Draft Policy ARIN-2019-11, the AC provided the following 
statement:

"Due to a lack of support from the community, the AC abandoned work on 
Draft Policy 2019-11 at its monthly meeting on Thursday, September 19th 
2019.   This policy proposal was speculative in nature and described a 
double corner case wherein an organization that had withdrawn completely 
from ARIN’s service region (and could therefore no longer meet the 
cursory requirements of business nexus) wishes to continue the 
pre-existing relationship with ARIN.  It elicited no support and a 
single one-word comment on PPML (“Oppose”) upon which the author 
declined to expand."

Anyone dissatisfied with these decisions may initiate a petition. The 
deadline to begin a petition will be five business days after the AC's 
draft meeting minutes are published.



The AC has advanced the following Draft Policy to Recommended Draft 
Policy status (will be posted separately for discussion):

* ARIN-2019-10: Inter-RIR M&A

The AC has advanced the following Proposal to Draft Policy status (will
