Draft Policy ARIN-2022-3: Remove officer attestation requirement for 8.5.5


Problem Statement:


Requiring an officer attestation requires unnecessary resources and increases the time to complete an IPv4 transfer.


Policy statement:


8.5.5. Block Size


Organizations may qualify for the transfer of a larger initial block, or an additional block, by providing documentation to ARIN which details the use of at least 50% of the requested IPv4 block size within 24 months.


Removing “An officer of the organization shall attest to the documentation provided to ARIN.” 


Timetable for implementation: Immediate
