Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2017.24 upon confirmed receipt, requesting ARIN allow network objects of simple reassignments to hold POC objects.

The addition of POC objects to the networks of simple reassignments would remove distinction between our currently available simple reassignments, where the addition of POC objects is not currently possible, and our detailed reassignments, where it is possible. We note in your suggestion that you may be seeking the ability to retain the use of a simple reassignment (and not use detailed reassignment), in some cases, but still be able to designate an abuse contact that is associated with the downstream organization.

This type of change to the features of ARIN’s reassignment systems may be of special interest to other users of ARIN’s services and may generate a wider discussion about reassignment system functionality and available features. To determine community interest on that topic, we will open a related community consultation in Q1 of 2018.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Your suggestion will remain open until reviewed through the consultation process and a determination is made on potential changes to ARIN’s reassignment systems.

This suggestion is not on the 2018 Work Plan and will be considered as part of the Community Consultation on Open ACSPs in April 2018. This consultation will serve as one of the inputs to help determine which suggestions will be included ARIN’s 2019 Work Plan.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2017.24 on confirmed receipt, asking that ARIN allow customers to specify abuse handling on Simple Reassignments.

In the time since you submitted this suggestion, the ARIN community has adopted policy 2018-5: Disallow Third-party Organization Record Creation and 2017-12: POC Notification and Validation Upon Reassignment or Reallocation. Because these policies require your downstream customers to create their own Org ID and POCs, your suggestion cannot be implemented. Furthermore, using the Detailed Reassignment allows you to reassign to your downstream customer and for them to have their own POCs listed, including an Abuse POC.

Because this work cannot be completed, we are closing your suggestion. Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process.
