Officer Attestation Information

As of 13 September 2023, as part of the Number Resource Policy Manual 2023.2 update, ARIN has removed the officer attestation requirement for organizations qualifying for initial IPv4 transfers larger than a /24 or additional transfers.

In May 2007, the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) Board of Trustees advised the Internet community that due to the impending depletion of the available IPv4 resource pool, migration to IPv6 is necessary for any applications that require ongoing availability from ARIN of IP number resources.

In May 2009, in anticipation of depletion of the IANA IPv4 free pool, the Board of Trustees directed ARIN to take additional steps to ensure the legitimacy of all IP address space requests. Until September 2023, ARIN required all applications for IP address space to include an attestation of accuracy from an officer of the organization to ensure that organizations submitting legitimate requests based on documented need will have access to IP address space to the maximum extent possible.
