Posted: Wed, 22 Aug 2007

On 14 June 2007, the ARIN Board of Trustees, based on the recommendations of the Advisory Council and noting that the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process had been followed, adopted the following policy proposal:

  • 2007-11: Refinement of ISP Initial Allocation Policy
  • 2007-9: Modernization of ISP Immediate Need Policy
  • 2007-8: Transfer Policy Clarifications
  • 2007-7: Creation of Policy for Subsequent End-User IP Requests/Assignments
  • 2007-4: Changes to IPv6 policy - removal of "interim" consideration

These policy proposals, as well as 2005-3: Lame Delegations, have been incorporated into version 2007.2 of the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) which is effective 22 August 2007. NRPM version 2007.2 supersedes previous versions. See Appendix A of the NRPM for information regarding changes to the manual.
