NRPM 2017.2 - New Policy Implemented

Posted: Thursday, 23 February 2017

On 21 February 2017, ARIN implemented several policies into the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) that had been recently adopted by the Board of Trustees. Since that time, an oversight has been noted in the implementation of ARIN-2016-4. Specifically, language from sections 4.2.2 and 4.3.3 had not been removed, as was specified by the adopted policy. As such, a corrected NRPM has been published to the ARIN website.

NRPM version 2017.2 is effective 23 February 2017 and supersedes the previous version.
