Thank you for submitting your suggestion, numbered 2014.30, on the topic of reflecting the return of AS numbers to ARIN in IRR data. ARIN agrees implementing your suggestion would be very useful, and we intend to consult with the community during Q1 of 2015 to determine implementation details for this suggestion and other related feedback ARIN has recently received on the topic of IRR object validation.

Thank you again for using the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Your suggestion will remain open until implemented.

As a result of the Internet Routing Registry (IRR) Validation consultation that was completed in April 2015, the ARIN Board approved ARIN staff to begin development of an improved IRR in 2016 which would integrate IRR functionality into ARIN Online to allow one application to be used for the management of both registry and routing data. After additional community discussion about possible IRR alternatives, ARIN’s President and CEO directed that all IRR open suggestions be considered so that an ARIN IRR Roadmap may be developed which provides overall direction on how ARIN’s IRR services should evolve.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2014.30 upon confirmed receipt, requesting that ARIN should remove the objects related to returned Organizations and ASNs from our IRR database.   This functionality is part of the implementation of our new Internet Routing Registry. Because this clean-up is now part of our processes, we are closing your suggestion.

Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process.
