Update to the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process

Posted: Tuesday, 29 July 2014

We have reviewed and revised the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process (ACSP) to add transparency and clarity to the administration of this community feedback mechanism.

Consultations and Suggestions now require the inclusion of a rationale to establish the intended benefit to the greater ARIN community.  We have also clarified the handling of suggestions that ARIN has identified for action, but cannot implement immediately.

We will continue to report ACSP progress at Public Policy Meetings and aggressively work to improve ARIN services using input provided by the community through this suggestions process and other feedback mechanisms.
