Again it was unfair to remove those from the list that followed the process.  I'm in agreement that the process needed to be changed, but it should have been a "moving forward" change, and not impacted those who had followed the existing process.  I'm in favor of this proposal.

Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2020-2: Reinstatement of Organizations Removed from Waitlist by Implementation of ARIN-2019-16

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

This Draft Policy is fair, impartial, and technically sound. The intent of this draft policy is to reinstate organizations to the waitlist that were removed via ARIN-2019-16's adoption if their total IPv4 holdings amount to a /18 or less. This would allow reinstated organizations to extend their two-year approval and qualify for up to a /22. This excludes any organizations who have since had requests met via the transfer market, or any that fulfill their requests with the transfer market after ARIN 2020-2 is implemented.

Note also that the Advisory Council changed the name of the policy upon learning the term "grandfather clause" has historical roots in preventing former slaves and their descendants from voting in the American South.

Problem Statement:

The implementation of the ARIN-2019-16 Advisory Council Recommendation Regarding NRPM 4.1.8: Unmet Requests caused some organizations to be removed from the waiting list that were approved under the old policy’s eligibility criteria. These organizations should have been grandfathered when the waitlist was reopened to allow them to receive an allocation of IPv4 up to the new policy’s maximum size constraint of a /22.

Policy Statement:

Add section (temporary language in the NRPM to remain until the policy objective is achieved)

Restoring organizations to the waitlist

ARIN will restore organizations that were removed from the waitlist at the adoption of ARIN-2019-16 to their previous position if their total holdings of IPv4 address space amounts to a /18 or less. The maximum size aggregate that a reinstated organization may qualify for is a /22.

All restored organizations extend their 2 year approval by [number of months between July 2019 and implementation of new policy]. Any requests met through a transfer will be considered fulfilled and removed from the waiting list.

Comments: none

Timetable For Implementation: Immediate

Anything Else:

While attending ARIN 44 and discussing this with other community members the vast majority  indicated that  they agreed that some organizations were treated unfairly. This proposal is a remedy.
