Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2020-1: Clarify Holding Period for 
Resources Received via 4.1.8 Waitlist

AC Assessment of Conformance with the Principles of Internet Number 
Resource Policy:

Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2020-1 (“RDP 2020-1”) clarifies that IPv4 
address space distributed from the waitlist will not be eligible for 
transfer for a period of 60 months with the exception of transfers under 
section 8.2 of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (“NRPM”). RDP 
2020-1 enables fair and impartial number resource administration by 
eliminating an ambiguity concerning whether NRPM section 8.2 transfers 
constitute an intended exception to the 60 month hold period under the 
waitlist policy. RDP 2020-1 is technically sound by fostering clarity 
and consistency in the application of the waitlist policy, while meeting 
community needs expressed in section 8.2 of the NRPM, all of which 
contributes to improved directory accuracy. RDP 2020-1 enjoys community 
support.

Problem Statement:

A recent Policy Experience Report reported ambiguity on the part of 
customers as to whether or not the 60-month restriction on transferring 
resources received via NRPM Section 4.1.8 applies to M&A transfers under 
NRPM Section 8.2. This proposal clarifies this restriction to exempt 8.2 
transfers from this restriction.

Policy Statement:

Update NRPM Section 4.1.8 as follows:

Original Text: Address space distributed from the waitlist will not be 
eligible for transfer for a period of 60 months.

New Text: Address space distributed from the waitlist will not be 
eligible for transfer, with the exception of Section 8.2 transfers, for 
a period of 60 months.”

Timetable for Implementation: Immediate
