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 
RegardingNRPM 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 4.1.8.3 (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.

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.
