In accordance with the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Advisory 
Council met on 24 January 2020.

The AC has advanced the following Recommended Draft Policy to the Board 
of Trustees for review:

* ARIN-2018-6: Clarify Reassignment Requirements in

The AC has abandoned the following Draft Policy:

* ARIN-2019-19: Require IPv6 Before Receiving Section 8 IPv4 Transfers

The AC released the following statement:

"The Advisory Council has abandoned Draft Policy ARIN-2019-19 due to 
lack of widespread support by the community. Discussion on the mailing 
list has not produced additional substantially supported text changes, 
and there did not appear to be a path toward consensus between those who 
supported the policy and those who did not support the policy."

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 is continuing to work on:

Recommended Draft Policies:

* ARIN-2019-1: Clarify Section 4 IPv4 Request Requirements
* ARIN-2019-10: Inter-RIR M&A

Draft Policies:

* ARIN-2019-12: M&A Legal Jurisdiction Exclusion
* ARIN-2019-20: Harmonization of Maximum Allocation Requirements under 
Sections 4.1.8 (ARIN Waitlist) and 4.2.2 (Initial Allocation to ISPs)
* ARIN-2019-21: Reserved Pool Replenishment


* ARIN-Prop-282: Grandfathering of Organizations Removed from Waitlist
