Information About New ARIN Templates

Posted: Tue, 29 Aug 2006

On 31 August 2006, ARIN will release new versions of all registration templates based upon feedback from the community and the experiences of ARIN staff. These revisions were made with the intention of making them clearer, more concise, and easier to complete.

In addition, some templates were revised to reflect changes necessary for upcoming policy implementations.

After 31 August 2006, all new requests for IP addresses and Autonomous System Numbers must be submitted using these revised templates. ARIN will continue to accept the previous versions of other templates for at least one year so that customers using scripts will have sufficient time to update their software. It is recommended that all other customers use the new templates to ensure more efficient processing.
