"The ARIN Board of Trustees, based on comments from stakeholders expressed either at the ARIN XV Public Policy meeting or on the ARIN public policy mailing list, having reviewed the comments collected during the Last Call period, and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process has been followed, recommends that the ICANN Board of Directors adopts Policy Proposal 2004-8: Allocation of IPv6 Address Space by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Policy to Regional Internet Registries as a global policy."

This was seconded by David Conrad. The Chair called for any discussion.
