Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2021-4: Clarifications to Sections 8.3, 8.4 and 8.5.6

 

AC Assessment of Conformance with the Principles of Internet Number Resource Policy: 

 

This Draft Policy is fair, impartial, and technically sound. The intent of this policy is to clarify the language in sections 6.5.2.1, 8.3, and 8.4 with respect to ASN-only transactions and the term “number resources”. It also clarifies that Section 8.5.6 refers specifically to IPv4.

 

Problem Statement: 

 

The current language in Sections 6.5.2.1, 8.3 and 8.4 is not clear regarding ASN-only transactions as well as the term “number resources”. The current language in Section 8.5.6 is not clear with regard to additional IPv4 space.

 

Policy statement: 

 

In section 6.5.2.1 g., Replace

 

”Partial returns of any IPv6 allocation that results in less than a /36 of holding are not permitted regardless of the ISP’s current or former IPv4 number resource holdings.”

 

with

 

”Partial returns of any IPv6 allocation that results in less than a /36 of holding are not permitted regardless of the ISP’s current or former IPv4 address holdings.”

 

In section 8.3,

 

Replace

 

“In addition to transfers under section 8.2, IPv4 number resources and ASNs may be transferred according to the following conditions.”

 

with

 

“In addition to transfers under section 8.2, IPv4 addresses or ASNs may be transferred according to the following conditions.”

 

Replace

 

“The source entity must be the current registered holder of the IPv4 address resources, and not be involved in any dispute as to the status of those resources.”

 

with

 

“The source entity must be the current registered holder of the IPv4 addresses or ASNs and not be involved in any dispute as to the status of those resources.”

 

In Section 8.4:

 

Replace

 

“Inter-regional transfers of IPv4 number resources and ASNs may take place only via RIRs who agree to the transfer and share reciprocal, compatible needs-based policies.”

 

with

 

“Inter-regional transfers of IPv4 addresses or ASNs may take place only via RIRs who agree to the transfer and share reciprocal, compatible needs-based policies.”

 

Replace

 

“The source entity must be the current rights holder of the IPv4 addresses or ASNs recognized by the RIR responsible for the resources, and not be involved in any dispute as to the status of those resources.”

 

with

 

“The source entity must be the current rights holder of the IPv4 addresses or ASN recognized by the RIR responsible for the resources, and not be involved in any dispute as to the status of those resources.”

 

In Section 8.5.6:

 

Replace

 

“Organizations with direct assignments or allocations from ARIN must have efficiently utilized at least 50% of their cumulative IPv4 address blocks in order to receive additional IPv4 addresses. This includes all space reassigned to their customers.”

 

with

 

“Organizations with direct assignments or allocations from ARIN must have efficiently utilized at least 50% of their cumulative IPv4 address blocks in order to receive additional IPv4 space. This includes all IPv4 space reassigned to their customers.”
