Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2022-3: Remove Officer Attestation Requirement for 8.5.5


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


Draft Policy 2022-3 conforms with the principles of the ARIN Policy Development Process. It is fair, impartial, and technically sound. This policy, if adopted, will remove the requirement of officer attestation from specified transfer recipients. The policy has received support from the community.


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




This is the only remaining mention outside Section 9 (which makes good use of the restrictions it has).


Due to the cost of IPv4 at this time it is safe to say that someone of authority is aware of this transaction without having them provide an attestation.
