Hi Chris,

Unfortunately neither the Whois port 43 service nor the Whois-RWS service
indicate if a POC has been marked valid or not. This would require an
enhancement to the Whois-RWS service. You can submit a request for this
enhancement via the ACSP submission form:

And though this is not exactly what you are seeking, ARIN does generate a
report of resources without valid POCs. You can download that report under
the "Download & Services" section via ARIN Online.

I hope this is helpful information.
