Staff and Legal review has been conducted for Draft Policy ARIN-2022-3. The
relevant bit for the community to consider is the legal review, which is as
"No material legal issue. Removal of the officer attestation would not
materially impact ARIN’s ability to pursue cases of fraud."

As shepherds, we believe this directly resolves the primary concern voiced
by members of the community.

For the full staff and legal review, please check the following:

> Hi PPML,
> I appreciate the lively discussion thus far on ARIN-2022-3, including
> concerns around what prosecutorial powers might be lost if officer
> attestations are no longer required. Thanks also to staff for summarizing
> the result of the ACSP Consultation 2021.4 retiring the officer attestation
> requirement for documentation of needs assessment.
> The prevailing concern in the community around ARIN-2022-3 appears to be
> that removing officer attestation would impede the prosecution of those
> conducting fraud. In order to have the experts address this concern, I
> (along with my fellow policy shepherd Joe) have requested a staff and legal
> review. Our hope is that staff (and legal counsel in particular) might
> directly weigh in on how important the officer attestation is.
> We will make sure that relevant points are highlighted back to PPML for
> the community to consider in further discussion of the draft policy.
> Warm regards,
> *Matthew Wilder*
