A new micro-allocation policy (Policy 2001-3) has been ratified in the ARIN region and will
be implemented immediately.
ARIN will make micro-allocations to critical infrastructure providers of the Internet, including public exchange points, core DNS service providers (e.g. ICANN-sanctioned root, gTLD, and ccTLD operators) as well as the RIRs and IANA. These allocations will be no longer than a
/24 using IPv4 or a /48 using IPv6. Multiple allocations may be granted in certain situations.
The full text of the policy can be viewed here: http://www.arin.net/policy/2001_3.html
This policy replaces ARIN's previous Micro-Allocation Policy, and was created in accordance with ARIN's Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process.
