Editorial Change ARIN-edit-2021-1: ASN Clarifications to Sections 2 and 8

 

Problem Statement:

 

The community has raised concerns that the current language in Section 8 is not clear regarding ASN-only transactions. There are also some language and reference inconsistencies which should be addressed while adjusting Section 8 and concordant adjustments to Section 2.

 

Policy statement:

 

Add a definition for ASN in Section 2:

 

Section 2.X Autonomous System Number (ASN)

 

An Autonomous System Number (ASN) is a unique identifier which represents a collection of network resources operated under a common routing policy administration, known as an autonomous system.

 

In Section 8.2:

 

Replace

 

“The Internet number resources being transferred as part of an 8.2 transfer will not be subject to a needs-based assessment during the process of the 8.2 transfer.”

 

with

 

“The Internet number resources being transferred as part of a transfer under section 8.2 will not be subject to a needs-based assessment during the process of the transfer.”

 

Replace

 

“The recipient must provide evidence that they have acquired the assets that use the resources to be transferred from the current registrant.”

 

with

 

“The recipient must provide evidence that it has acquired the assets that use the resources to be transferred from the current registrant.”

 

Replace

 

“The recipient must show that they have acquired the entire entity which is the current registrant.”

 

with

 

“The recipient must show that it has acquired the entire entity which is the current registrant.”

 

Replace

 

“An organization which serves as the source of an 8.2 IPv4 transfer will not be allowed to apply for IPv4 address space under section 4.1.8 ARIN Waitlist for a period of 36 months following said transfer unless the recipient organization remains a subsidiary, parent company, or under common ownership with the source organization.”

 

with

 

“An organization which serves as the source of an IPv4 transfer under section 8.2 will not be allowed to apply for IPv4 address space under section 4.1.8 ARIN Waitlist for a period of 36 months following said transfer unless the recipient organization remains a subsidiary, parent company, or under common ownership with the source organization.”

 

In Section 8.3:

 

Replace

 

“Number resources received as the result of an 8.2 transfer are out of scope for the purposes of this restriction.”

 

with

 

“Number resources received as the result of a transfer under section 8.2 are out of scope for the purposes of this restriction.”

 

In Section 8.4:

 

Replace

 

“Source entities within the ARIN region must not have received a transfer, allocation, or assignment of IPv4 number resources from ARIN for the 12 months prior to the approval of a transfer request, unless either the source or recipient entity owns or controls the other, or both are under common ownership or control. Number resources received as the result of an 8.2 transfer are out of scope for the purposes of this restriction.”

 

with

 

“Source entities within the ARIN region must not have received a transfer, allocation, or assignment of IPv4 addresses from ARIN for the 12 months prior to the approval of a transfer request, unless either the source or recipient entity owns or controls the other, or both are under common ownership or control. Number resources received as the result of a section 8.2 transfer are out of scope for the purposes of this restriction.”

 

Add a space between “Section” and “4.4” in the fourth bullet under “Conditions on source of the transfer”

 

In Section 8.5.7:

 

Replace

 

“In lieu of 8.5.5 and 8.5.6, organizations may qualify for additional IPv4 address blocks by demonstrating 80% utilization of their currently allocated space.”

 

with

 

“In lieu of the requirements in sections 8.5.5 and 8.5.6, organizations may qualify for additional IPv4 address blocks by demonstrating 80% utilization of their currently allocated space.”

 

Replace

 

“An organization may qualify via 8.5.7 for a total of a /16 equivalent in any 6 month period.”
