Revisions Implementation

Version Date: 21 November 2017

Problem Statement:

ARIN review of large IPv4 reassignments or rellocations was put in place when ARIN had a free pool of IPv4 addresses. The main purpose of the review was to ensure that ISPs were following RFC2050 and ARIN policy for large blocks. Since there is no longer a free pool and blocks have a value through transfer, there is now a disincentive for ISPs to over assign blocks to downstream customers. Thus this policy is no longer needed.

Policy statement:

Remove Section 4.2.3.5 of NRPM

Comments:

Timetable for implementation: Immediate

1.  Summary (Staff Understanding)

Draft Policy 2017-13 removes the requirement for ARIN staff to review and approve customer reallocations/reassignments under NRPM 4.2.3.5.

___

2.  Comments

A.  ARIN Staff Comments

* Removal of NRPM 4.2.3.5 will result in ARIN staff no longer reviewing and approving large reassignments/reallocations made from Direct Allocations. Note that ARIN staff will continue to follow our process of reviewing reassignments/reallocations to verify usage for IPv4 requests submitted for waitlist purposes or for recipient transfers.

* This policy could be implemented as written.

B.  ARIN General Counsel – Legal Assessment

* There are no material legal issues regarding this proposal.

___

3.  Resource Impact

Implementation of this policy would have minimal resource impact. It is estimated that implementation could occur within 3 months after ratification by the ARIN Board of Trustees. The following would be needed in order to implement:

* Updated guidelines and internal procedures

* Staff training

* Some engineering work will be required
