Draft Policy ARIN-2020-8
Clarify and Update 18.104.22.168 Annual Renewal Fee
Status: Under Discussion
Shepherds: Joe Provo, Owen DeLong
Current Text (20 November 2020)
The January 2020 Policy Experience Report highlighted that the existing language in Section 22.214.171.124 “Annual Renewal” references fees. Fees are not considered a member qualification criteria. Since fees aren’t referenced elsewhere in community policy, the wording was reviewed by the PEG.
Given that the Registration Services Agreement (RSA) already contains language regarding fees, the AC Shepherds recommend to eliminate 126.96.36.199. entirely and add:
2.X Registration Services Agreement (RSA)
Number resources allocated or assigned by ARIN under these policies are subject to a Registration Services Agreement (RSA) between ARIN and the resource holder. This agreement covers terms, rights, responsibilities and conditions of service; failure to adhere to the RSA may result in revocation of number resources.
The AC’s understanding is that community policy should not include language referring to fees, as such language is already present in the Registration Services Agreement (RSA)
Registration Services has informed us that “Section 188.8.131.52. contains language detailing fee due dates, encouraging on-time payments, and mentions potential revocations. It also contains a reference to web documentation that has evolved significantly since this policy was implemented, and may continue to do so. Essentially the entire section is made of language that is already in the Registration Services Agreement, and is generally fee-focused, making it outside normal scope for Internet number resource policy.”
Timetable for Implementation: Immediate
Anything Else: Community input since adopting draft has informed this direction. The 2.X placeholder is used as this seems like it might be foundational enough to not be 2.17 but the Shepherds would rather not upset current indexing arbitrarily.
