ARIN-prop-204 Removing Needs Test from Small IPv4 Transfers

Proposal Originator: Mike Burns

Date: 16 April 2014

Problem Statement:

ARIN staff, faced with a surge in near-exhaust
allocations and subsequent transfer requests and a requirement for team
review of these, is spending scarce staff time on needs testing of small
transfers. This proposal seeks to decrease overall ARIN processing time
through elimination of that needs test.

Policy statement:

Change the language in NRPM 8.3 after “Conditions on the
recipient of the transfer:” from "The recipient must demonstrate the need
for up to a 24-month supply of IP address resources under current ARIN
policies and sign an RSA." to "For transfers larger than a /16 equivalent,
the recipient must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply of IP
address resources under current ARIN policies and sign an RSA."

Change the language in the third bullet point in NRPM 8.4 after “Conditions
on the recipient of the transfer:” from "Recipients within the ARIN region
must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply of IPv4 address
space." to "For transfers larger than a /16 equivalent, recipients in the
ARIN region must demonstrate the need for up to a 24-month supply of IP
address resources under current ARIN policies and sign an RSA."

Comments:

Needs testing has been maintained for transfers largely because
the community wishes to ensure protection against hoarding and speculation
in the IPv4 market. This proposal seeks a middle ground between the
elimination of needs tests for transfers altogether, and the continuance of
needs tests for every transfer. This should help ARIN staff to reduce
transfer processing time, since most transfers have been smaller than /16.

Timetable for implementation: Immediate
