Draft Policy ARIN-2011-11
Clarify Justified Need for Transfers
Date: 24 August 2011
Add to Section 8.3:
"...they can justify under current ARIN policies
showing how the addresses will be utilized within 12 months."
Remove from 188.8.131.52:
"This reduction does not apply to resources
received via section 8.3. An organization receiving a transfer under
section 8.3 may continue to request up to a 12-month supply of IP
An organization which is not able to obtain its initial IPv4 address
assignment from ARIN post-runout would otherwise be limited to
purchasing only a 3-month supply (because the language in 184.108.40.206
regarding 8.3 transfers is not triggered).
An organization which has only recently received its first allocation
under the "last /8" criteria is also otherwise limited to purchasing
only a 3-month supply (because the language in 220.127.116.11 is again not
There is also ambiguity if 18.104.22.168.3 is applied in that a transfer to
a new organization might only need to show need for a /20 (because that
is what is specifically called out) even though they are receiving a
much larger block.
Previous version of this proposal modified Section 8 to point at 4.2.4,
rather than the shorter and clearer modification to 8.3 now proposed.
There is also ambiguity with regard to transfers under 8.2 where the
receiving organization is a new organization... not at all clear how
"justified need" has been or should be determined, however this proposal
no longer addresses this.
