Section 8 Editorial Clean-up
Shepherds: Alison Wood, Kerrie Richards
Current Text (18 August 2021)
ARIN staff have identified some areas of potential NRPM editorial clean-up. Building on those recommendations the ARIN AC NRPM Clean-up Working Group undertook an editorial review of the NRPM.
The focus of the review was to clarify and simplify language, employ consistent and more up to date terminology throughout and renumber the sections after removing section numbers that were no longer being utilized. The changes resulting from this review were captured in ARIN-edit-2020-9, proposed in September 2020.
The portions of ARIN-edit-2020-9 relating to Sections 8.3 and 8.4 of the NRPM are presented in this editorial change for community consideration. The remaining portions will be presented separately.
In Section 8.3.:
Under “Conditions on source of the transfer,”
“The source entity must not have received a transfer, allocation, or assignment of IPv4 number resources from ARIN for the 12 months prior to the approval of a transfer request. Number resources received as the result of an 8.2 transfer are out of scope for the purposes of this restriction.”
“Excluding section 8.2 transfers, the source entity must not have received a transfer, allocation, or assignment of IPv4 number resources from ARIN during the 12 months prior to the approval of a transfer request.”
In Section 8.4.:
Under “Conditions on source of the transfer,” replace “Number resources received as the result of an 8.2 transfer are out of scope for the purposes of this restriction” with “This restriction does not include 8.2 transfers.”
