ACSP Suggestion 2018.20: Change Requirements for STLS Facilitators


Author: Peter Thimmesch   
Submitted On: 08 August 2018


This suggestion upgrades and clarifies the requirements for entities and individuals to qualify and register as approved facilitators for transfers of number resources.

Submitter will send, via email, two accompanying documents, both in .doc and .pdf format.


Value to Community: Many ARIN members rely upon the facilitator list for access to additional resources but these “agents” act as if they are approved by ARIN which has led numerous entities to waste valuable time, money and effort.

Timeframe: Not specified

Status: Closed   Updated: 27 August 2018
