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)

Problem Statement:

Requiring an officer attestation requires unnecessary resources and increases the time to complete an IPv4 transfer.

Policy statement:

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.
