ARIN Public Policy Meeting:ARIN XIX
ARIN Board of Trustees:
Author(s):Jordi Palet Martinez
Proposal type: delete
Policy term: permanent
Delete section 18.104.22.168. of NRPM.
The current text requires the LIR to justify to the RIR/NIR when assigning multiple /48s to a single end site. It seems that the reason for this requirement is the lack of experience, which seems unreasonable after a few years this policy has been implemented, even if may not have been specific cases which used this policy section.
It seems useless, now that there is already deployment experience, to require a justification from the LIR to ARIN for assigning multiple /48s (or a shorter prefix, such as for example a /47). It is up to the LIR to require the justification to its own customers and decide according to it. The LIR will be already responsible to justify to ARIN the usage of any allocated block(s) when requesting for more, and this will already implicate an implicit justification of this kind of assignments.
With this policy change, both ARIN and LIR staff will save resources in a justification, which seems unnecessary and should be completely on the hands of the LIR itself.
No financial/liability implications for the community and ARIN are foreseen.
No special conditions, fees, exceptions, etc. seem to be required.
Timetable for implementation: Immediate
