On 12 February 2006, the ARIN Board of Trustees ratified policy proposal 2005-7 "Rationalize Multi-Homing Definition and Requirement." This adopted policy changed Sections 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 of the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM).
In order to implement this policy, ARIN's Registration Services Department will now be requiring additional information for any IPv4 request that is submitted under the multi-homing policy. In addition, to normalize the requirements regarding multi-homing, this additional information will also be required to validate Autonomous System Number (ASN) requests that are submitted under the multi-homing clause of the ASN policy.
The additional information required includes, but is not limited to, copies of agreements with transit providers and/or peers to validate the intention to multi-home. This additional information, as well as all other information used to justify resource requests, will be kept confidential.
