Draft Policy ARIN-2022-1: MDN Clarification for Qualification


Problem Statement:


Problem Statement: The requirements for transfers involving companies operating multiple discrete networks under section 8.5 of the NRPM are unclear and need clarification.


Policy statement:


Replace the first paragraph of Section 8.5.7 with the following:


Organizations may qualify for additional IPv4 address blocks by demonstrating 80% utilization of their currently allocated space. In organizations operating multiple discrete networks, each discrete network may be assessed individually for the 80% utilization threshold. To qualify under this policy, the organization must provide justification that each network is discrete, per the criteria described in section 4.5. Each discrete network must meet the projection requirements in section 8.5.5, and each discrete network must meet the utilization requirements in section 8.5.6. Organizations may receive one or more transfers up to the total size of their current ARIN IPv4 address holdings, up to a maximum size of /16.


Timetable for implementation: Any
