Participate in the Public Policy Process at ARIN 39

Posted: Tuesday, 21 March 2017

We hope you’ve heard about the upcoming ARIN 39 Public Policy and Members Meeting, taking place 2-5 April in New Orleans, and that you are planning to participate in this important policy discussion forum. Knowing that these policies have a direct impact on your business, can you think of a better reason to tune in and share your thoughts? We can’t either.

The policy discussions at ARIN 39 will include:

  • Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2016-3: Alternative Simplified Criteria for Justifying Small IPv4 Transfers
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2016-8: Removal of Indirect POC Validation Requirement
  • Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2016-9: Streamline Merger & Acquisition Transfers
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-1: Clarify Slow Start for Transfers
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-2: Removal of Community Networks
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-3: Update to NPRM 3.6: Annual Whois POC Validation

All draft policy text is available at:

You won’t want to miss other agenda highlights like updates on software development, data accuracy projects, and the latest news from the other RIRs. We will also hold an IPv6 panel discussion which will feature case studies and guidance from organizations that have successfully deployed IPv6. In addition, we are pleased to welcome ICANN President and CEO Göran Marby to ARIN 39, who will be speaking on Tuesday, 4 April.

We hope to see you there, but if you are unable to make it in person, participating online can be equally rewarding. As a registered remote participant, you'll be able to access the live transcript and webcast on the ARIN website throughout the meeting, submit questions and comments alongside in-person attendees, and raise your virtual hand during straw polls.

In order to take full advantage of remote participation, you will need a Jabber client, and we'll need your Jabber Identifier (JID) when you register. For details, visit the ARIN 39 Remote Participation page:

Note that all remote participants are subject to the Remote Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) found at:

Whether you attend in person or remotely, we look forward to your participation! Please contact us at if you have any questions.
