Draft Policy ARIN-2022-11: Clean-up of NRPM – Introduction of Section 2.17


Problem Statement:


Although the term “IANA” appears throughout Section 10 of the NRPM, there is no reference to any definition of the term. This proposal defines the term with reference to appropriate ICANN documentation.


Policy statement:


Introduce a new Section 2.17 that reads as follows:


“2.17 Internet Assigned Names and Numbers (IANA)


The term Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) refers to a set of functions which includes the global coordination of Internet number resources, consisting of IPv4 and IPv6 IP addresses and ASNs.”


Timetable for implementation: Immediate




Although this proposal was drafted in the course of an editorial review of Section 2 of the NRPM, the addition of a new definition may not be considered purely editorial in nature and so this proposal is not being presented as strictly editorial.
