Draft Policy ARIN-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 numbering resources”, and in Section 2.2, change the text “address space” to “numbering resources” to reflect all of the types of Internet numbering 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.
