If an organization, whether a member or non-member, ISP or end-user, relinquishes a larger block of portable address space to ARIN, they may be allowed to receive a smaller block, /24 or shorter, in exchange. The organization will not be required to justify their use of the new, smaller block. The organization must return the block to be exchanged within 12 months. ARIN shall, at their discretion, determine whether the smaller replacement block shall be a subnet of the returned block, or a block allocated from some different range. If any of the relinquished blocks had associated maintenance fees, then the new block will be subject to the appropriate fees for that block size. Likewise those without maintenance fees shall remain so.
