On 18 August 2022, the ARIN Advisory Council (AC) classified "Draft Policy ARIN-2022-4: Clean-up of NRPM Sections 2.1 and 2.2" as an Editorial Change to the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM).


The text is below and can be found at:




The process for Editorial Changes is found in Part One, Section 3.1, paragraph 3 of the Policy Development Process (PDP):


"Changes to policy that are purely editorial and non-substantial in nature are outside the scope of the full Policy Development Process and may only be made with 30 days public notice followed by the concurrence of both the ARIN Advisory Council and ARIN Board of Trustees that the changes are non-substantial in nature."


Your feedback on this Editorial Change is encouraged. The review period will close on 23 September 2022, accounting for one United States federal holiday.

Editorial Change ARIN-edit-2022-4: Clean-up of NRPM Sections 2.1 and 2.2


Problem Statement:


This proposal continues the work that the ARIN AC NRPM Clean-up Working Group undertook to conduct an editorial review of the NRPM. It relates specifically to Sections 2.1 and 2.2. The focus of this proposal is to increase the consistency of terminology employed in the NRPM.


Policy statement:


In Section 2.1, change the text “IP address space” to “Internet number resources”, and in Section 2.2, change the text “address space” to “number resources” to reflect all of the types of Internet number resources administered by the types of entities defined in those sections.


Timetable for implementation: Immediate




This proposal is intended to replace Prop-305 in part. Although the proposal was drafted in the course of an editorial review of Sections 2.1 and 2.2, some of the changes proposed may not be considered purely editorial in nature and so this proposal is not being presented as strictly editorial.
