[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2022-3: Remove Officer Attestation Requirement for 8.5.5

Hello PPML,

ARIN would like to provide a clarification on both the Officer Attestation which is what is highlighted in DP ARIN-2022-3 and the Officer Acknowledgement which is not included in that Draft Policy.

Officer Attestation, as referenced in ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) 8.5.5 Block Size is specifically asking for an officer of the organization to attest to the documented justification that states at least 50% of the requested block size will be used within the next 24 months. There is no notarization required and it serves to state and confirm that yes, that is our plan for the next 24 months and the information and documentation provided is accurate. This is only asked for in conjunction with a specified transfer recipient.

On the other hand, Officer Acknowledgement, which is not contained in the NRPM, is an operational requirement for Source Organizations (Current Registrant) found at:


This requirement states that “The source organization must provide a signed and notarized Officer Acknowledgement Letter<https://www.arin.net/about/corporate/agreements/office_acknowledgement.pdf>. The purposes of this requirement are:

-to state that there are no known disputes from another party to claim rights to these Internet number resources
-to ensure that a duly authorized officer has the authority to legally bind the source registrant
-to document the authorization to transfer said resources
-to provide indemnification to ARIN
-to verify that the data in the transfer request ticket is accurate
-to agree to all terms and release the rights to the Internet number resources contained in the specified transfer ticket.

As you can see there is really no comparison to the two separate and distinct documents that serve two very different purposes.

If there is further information required please reply and we will get that out to the list.

I don't believe either form (Acknowledgement or Attestation) are currently optional.  Only the Acknowledgement form needs to be notarized, however.
