Version Date: 20 November 2018

Problem Statement:

Current NRMP section "Reassignment and Reallocation Information" is being interpreted by some organizations to require a "detailed reassignment" for all customers. Under the current reassignment schema, only a "detailed reassignment or reallocation" contains fields for "organizational information".

This policy intends to simplify the reassignment requirements by noting that only a customer's name is required. Thus a "simple reassignment" can be used for most reassignments.

Policy Statement:

Replace section with the following: Reassignment and Reallocation Information

Each IPv4 reassignment or reallocation containing a /29 or more addresses shall be registered via a directory services system which meets the standards set forth in section 3.2.

Reassignment registrations must include each customer name, except where specifically exempted by this policy. Reassignment registrations shall only include point of contact (POC) information if either: (1) requested by the customer; or (2) the reassigned block is intended to be routed and announced outside of the provider's network.

Reallocation registrations must contain the customer's organization name and appropriate point of contact (POC) information.


Timetable for implementation: immediate
