Draft Policy 2011-1: ARIN Inter-RIR Transfers

Speaker: John Curran, ARIN President and CEO
Presentation: PDF PPTX
Transcript

John Curran presented an introduction to the proposal.

Highlights included:

  • Introduced on PPML in October 2010 (ARIN-prop-119) and designated as a draft policy in May 2011. Current version: 14 October 2011. Revised text sent to extended last call (Oct/Nov 2011) and AC recommended adoption (Nov 2011)
  • 2011-1 had extensive revisions for clarity after ARIN XXVIII
  • The Board directed ARIN to prepare to implement the revised version, but adoption is still pending discussion at this meeting
  • Final community consultation is today

John asked that the attendees comment specifically on whether or not the rewritten draft policy is substantively identical to the previous version.

Discussion highlights include:

  • Declaration after some clarifications that the view of the room was that the policy is identical.
  • Concern regarding the potential inability for ARIN community members to activate a “safety valve” should this policy bring about unforeseen and undesired consequences
  • Suggestion that implementation of 2011-1 be deferred and jointly implemented with 2012-2, if it can be expedited, because they are closely related

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

Because this is a recommended policy that ARIN is already preparing to implement, a show of hands was not requested.

Open Microphone

Moderator: John Curran, ARIN President and CEO
