Hello, PPML –

I’m writing to remind you all that ARIN currently has an open community consultation regarding the proposed updated Policy Development Process (PDP) for policy development in the ARIN region.

The Advisory Council's PDP Working Group began in early 2020 with a goal to review the PDP and the feedback that had been received over the years, then produced a recommendation for changes based on this review.

The primary goals of this assessment were to:

  * improve the readability of the document;
  * make recommendations to resolve issues that have been noted in the current process over the past decade;
  * and to resolve ambiguity in the current PDP structure.

After this review, the Working Group decided, in consultation with the remaining Advisory Council (AC), to embark on a rewrite of the PDP. 

This revision to the PDP includes extensive restructuring of the material for improved readability, as well as a clearer understanding on the process to update and amend the PDP.

The proposed version of the PDP is located here:  https://www.arin.net/participate/community/acsp/consultations/2022/20226_PDPconsultation.pdf

Please provide comments directly to the arin-consult at arin.net mailing list.   You can subscribe to that mailing list a https://lists.arin.net/mailman/listinfo/arin-consult.

Discussion on  arin-consult  will close on 6 October 2022. 

ARIN seeks clear direction through community input, so your feedback is important.

Thank you, and we look forward to your feedback, and hopefully seeing you in L.A. for ARIN 50!

Leif Sawyer
Chair,  ARIN Advisory Council
