ARIN-prop-218 Modify 8.2 section to better reflect how ARIN handles reorganizations

Proposal Originator: David Huberman

Problem Statement:

ARIN staff indicated that NRPM 8.2 does not clearly indicate how ARIN procedures handle reorganizations. ARIN staff indicated that the first policy bullet point does not apply to reorganizations.

Policy statement:

Replacement text for entire 8.2 section:

8.2. Mergers, Acquisitions, and Reorganizations

ARIN will consider requests for the transfer of number resources in the case of mergers, acquisitions, and reorganizations under the following conditions:

-The current registrant must not be involved in any dispute as to the status of the resources to be transferred.

-The new entity must sign an RSA covering all resources to be transferred.

-The resources to be transferred will be subject to ARIN policies.

-The minimum transfer size is the smaller of the original allocation size or the applicable minimum allocation size in current policy.

-For mergers and acquisition transfers, the recipient entity must provide evidence that they have acquired assets that use the resources to be transferred from the current registrant. ARIN will maintain an up-to-date list of acceptable types of documentation.

In the event that number resources of the combined organizations are no longer justified under ARIN policy at the time ARIN becomes aware of the transaction, through a transfer request or otherwise, ARIN will work with the resource holder(s) to return or transfer resources as needed to restore compliance via the processes outlined in current ARIN policy.


The problem statement is addressed by:

-re-title 8.2

-clarify the documentation bullet point

-rearrange the documentation bullet to the end of the list since it only applies to some requestors, while the other bullet points apply to all requestors.
