ACSP Suggestion 2019.12: Changes to Special Policy Actions Section of PDP


Author: Andrew Dul   
Submitted On: 15 May 2019

Description: Add additional detail to section 10 (Special Policy Actions) of the PDP

Value to Community: Section 10 of the PDP (Special Policy Actions) is a seldom used section, but when it is used it is usually a significant action. The current PDP contains limited detail about the processes the community, advisory council, and board should go through when dealing with an suspended or emergency policy action. My suggestion is to add additional detail and process flow language to this section of the PDP using the recent suspension of the wait-list policy as valued input into how a suspended policy may be updated. My hope is that the additional details gives the board, advisory council, and community a better road map of how a suspended or emergency policy will be reviewed and implemented.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2019.12 upon confirmed receipt.

As we understand it, this suggestion recommends edits and clarifications to the Special Policy Actions section of the Policy Development Process (PDP) in order to make the process clearer and provide a better roadmap for implementation of this type of event.

Given that changes to the PDP are made per direction of the ARIN Board of Trustees, this suggestion will be provided to the ARIN Board Chair, and it will be reviewed during the next periodic update to the PDP.

Thank you for your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. This suggestion is now closed.
