ARIN has received and issued its response to ACSP Suggestion 2015.12. 
The suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion is 
now closed and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

Description: I suggest that ARIN adopt a similar policy to APNIC in 
which current holders of IPv4 are automatically eligible to receive IPv6 
free of charge. Under Section 9.3.1. of the [APNIC-127] APNIC Internet 
Number Resource Policies, automatically qualify for IPv6 delegation if 
they hold IPv4 but not IPv6. I suggest that the block received would be 
a /48 - these are in abundance with IPv6 being 128bit. Value to 
Community: This would be extremely valuable to the community and would 
allow organisations who hold IPv4 to receive IPv6 without a long wait time.


Thanks for your suggestion, numbered 2015.12 upon confirmed receipt, to 
make IPv4 resource holders automatically eligible to receive free IPv6 
resources. This suggestion concerns Internet number resource policy, and 
would be better directed through the ARIN Policy Development Process. We 
recommend you post your proposal on the ARIN Public Policy Mailing List 
for comment prior to submitting a formal proposal. We do hope you will 
pursue putting this suggestion to the community to see if there is 
interest in moving it forward as a proposal.
Because your request is out of scope of the ARIN Consultation and 
Suggestion process (ACSP) this suggestion is now closed.
