Recognizing that the set of documents that state and describe the various ARIN Internet Number Resource policies is not organized in a single useable fashion, the ARIN Board of Trustees, at its meeting of 3 August 2004 adopted a strategy and accompanying schedule to collate these documents into a single document. The ARIN staff prepared the document. The ARIN Advisory Council reviewed the document to ensure that all existing policies were present in the new document, that they were correctly stated, and that no inadvertent changes had been introduced in the collation process. The ARIN Advisory Council, at their 27 September 2004 meeting recommended that the document be adopted by the ARIN Board of Trustees. The ARIN Board of Trustees, at their 29 September 2004 meeting, adopted the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual.
Effective 15 October 2004 the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual is the official ARIN policy document.
According to the strategy adopted by the ARIN Board of Trustees, all of the previous versions of ARIN policies have been archived.
The Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) can be found at:
The NRPM will be version controlled. The original version is 2004.1. A new version will be issued as policies are added, modified or deleted. All activity will be recorded in Appendix A of the document. Previous versions of the NRPM will be archived.
