CT also noted that if the resulting version has significant changes, he will move to change the status to Draft Policy.

KR stated that after consulting with the AC, she and RS would be editing the text and submitting it to the PPML with a request for a 21-day period of community input so that feedback can be collected and reviewed at the AC’s February teleconference meeting.

6. ARIN-2018-5: Disallow Third-Party Organization Record Creation

AD stated that there have been positive comments on the PPML. AD stated that during the workshop, the AC discussed the draft text and agreed that it should be revised to reflect only the aspect of the draft policy dealing with the creation of Organization Identifiers (Org IDs) in Whois. He further stated that he intends to circulate a draft policy to the AC’s mailing list over the next week, prior to updating the post to the PPML.

7. ARIN-2018-6: Clarify Reassignment Requirements in

AM stated that the AC has reviewed the current text and discussed the need to clarify ‘simple’ vs. ‘detailed’ reassignments.

8. Any Other Business
