Draft Policy ARIN-2020-5: Clarify and Update Requirements for
Allocations to Downstream Customers
A recent Policy Experience Report demonstrated the fact that the
existing Section 188.8.131.52 references RFC2050, which is obsolete, and is
not synchronized with utilization requirements carried in Section 4.3.3,
specifically the utilization rate.
Given that RFC7020, which supercedes RFC2050, no longer carries specific
utilization requirements for downstream customers of ISPs, its reference
may be removed from Section 184.108.40.206, instead referencing 4.3.3
(currently, 50% utilization within 24 months) to harmonize the
utilization requirements of both ISPs and their downstream customers.
Removing these references from Section 220.127.116.11 will simplify the
language of that section.
Replace sections 18.104.22.168.1 and sections 22.214.171.124 with the following text:
A downstream customer requesting address space from an upstream ISP must
document a plan to the allocating ISP for their utilization to conform
to Section 4.3.3. Reassignment and reallocation information for prior
allocations must show that each customer meets the 80% utilization
criteria and must be available via SWIP / a distributed service which
meets the standards set forth in section 3.2 prior to your issuing them
126.96.36.199. Reassignments to Multihomed Downstream Customers
If a downstream customer has a requirement to multihome, that
requirement alone will serve as justification for a /24 allocation.
Downstream customers must provide contact information for all of their
upstream providers to the ISP from whom they are requesting a /24, and
utilize BGP as the routing protocol between the customer and the ISP.
Customers may receive a /24 from only one of their upstream providers
under this policy without providing additional justification. ISPs may
demonstrate they have made an assignment to a downstream customer under
this policy by supplying ARIN with the information they collected from
the customer, as described above, or by identifying the AS number of the
Timetable for implementation: Immediate
