Abuse Contact To Be Mandatory per Policy 2010-14

Posted: Mon, 18 July 2011

ARIN is preparing to implement Policy 2010-14: Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements.

Once this policy is implemented, all new Organization registration records (Org IDs) will need to include an Abuse POC (in addition to the already required Admin and Tech). ARIN Online, REST, and templates are all being modified to enforce this new policy requirement

Existing Org IDs will also need to comply with this rule. If an existing Org ID does not have an Abuse POC already listed, the existing Tech POC (s) will also become the Abuse POC(s) by default.

This policy will be implemented no later than 30 September 2011. We strongly urge all customers to review and update their organization information data, and to add an Abuse POC if one is not currently listed.  Again, if a new Abuse POC is not added to the record, the existing Tech POC (s) will also become the Abuse POC(s) by default.

If there are any questions, please contact the Registration Services department at
