As detailed in the Policy Development
Process (PDP), the ARIN community decides how ARIN will manage and
administer Internet number resources. These community decisions are
recorded as polices. The ARIN Number
Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) is the repository for all policies.
Draft policies & proposals currently under discussion are available here.
Previous versions of the
PDP document the process by which the
ARIN community developed policy throughout ARIN's history.
The Proposal Archive
documents every policy proposal received. The Draft Policy Archive lists
every draft policy that has received resolution. Policy is discussed on
the Public Policy
Mailing List (PPML), which is archived here.
Every time new policies are adopted, a new version of the NRPM is posted. The NRPM Change Log links to all
previous versions of the NRPM, as well as details about which policies
were enacted and which sections were modified.
ARIN's Public Policy and Members Meetings, as well as Public Policy
Consultations (PPCs), play a large role in the PDP. Please check out
our complete archive
of all policy and members meetings for more information.
The Advisory Council (AC), as tasked
by the Board of Trustees (BoT), is
integral to the development of Internet number resource policy at ARIN.
The archive of AC meeting
minutes document all policy-related actions.
ARIN on the Road
events provide the latest information on ARIN's technical services,
the status of IPv6 adoption, current ARIN policy developments and
updates about ARIN and the RIR system. Archives of our presentations
are also available.
