Draft Policy ARIN-2020-2

Grandfathering of Organizations Removed from Waitlist by Implementation of ARIN-2019-16

Status: Under Discussion
Shepherds: Alyssa Moore, Anita Nikolich

Current Text (24 March 2020)

Problem Statement:

The implementation of the ARIN-2019-16 Advisory Council Recommendation RegardingNRPM 4.1.8: Unmet Requests caused some organizations to be removed from the waiting list that were approved under the old policy’s eligibility criteria. These organizations should have been grandfathered when the waitlist was reopened to allow them to receive an allocation of IPv4 up to the new policy’s maximum size constraint of a /22.

Policy Statement:

Add section (temporary language in the NRPM to remain until the policy objective is achieved)

Restoring organizations to the waitlist

ARIN will restore organizations that were removed from the waitlist at the adoption of ARIN-2019-16 to their previous position if their total holdings of IPv4 address space amounts to a /18 or less. The maximum size aggregate that a reinstated organization may qualify for is a /22.

All restored organizations extend their 2 year approval by [number of months between July 2019 and implementation of new policy]. Any requests met through a transfer will be considered fulfilled and removed from the waiting list.

Timetable for Implementation: Immediate

Anything Else:

While attending ARIN 44 and discussing this with other community members the vast majority indicated that they agreed that some organizations were treated unfairly. This proposal is a remedy.
