ARIN-prop-309: Remove officer attestation requirement for 8.5.5
Date: 6 June 2022
Proposal Originator: Alison Wood, Alyssa Quinn, Anita Nikolich (The ARIN Advisory Council Policy Experience Working Group)
Requiring an officer attestation requires unnecessary resources and increases the time to complete an IPv4 transfer.
8.5.5. Block Size
Organizations may qualify for the transfer of a larger initial block, or an additional block, by providing documentation to ARIN which details the use of at least 50% of the requested IPv4 block size within 24 months.
Removing “An officer of the organization shall attest to the documentation provided to ARIN.”
Timetable for implementation: Immediate Comments:
- This is the only remaining mention outside Section 9 (which makes good use of the restrictions it has).
- Due to the cost of IPv4 at this time it is safe to say that someone of authority is aware of this transaction without having them provide an attestation.
