Proposal

A. 5.1.1(d), which currently reads: "d) have a plan for making at least 200 /48 assignments to other organizations within two years" will have the timeframe changed from "two years" to "five years".

B. 5.1.1(d) will have prepended "be an existing, known ISP in the ARIN region or..."

These changes to the initial allocation criteria are to acknowledge the slow pace of IPv6 deployment in the ARIN region. Also they further stress the availability of IPv6 allocations to existing service providers in the ARIN region.

The following is section 5.1.1 as it currently is in the ARIN IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy document:

5.1.1. Initial allocation criteria

To qualify for an initial allocation of IPv6 address space, an organization must:

  1. be an LIR;
  2. not be an end site;
  3. plan to provide IPv6 connectivity to organizations to which it will assign /48s, by advertising that connectivity through its single aggregated address allocation; and
  4. have a plan for making at least 200 /48 assignments to other organizations within two years.

The ARIN IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy is available here:

Timetable for implementation: 30 days after ratification
