Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2015-7: Simplified requirements for
demonstrated need for IPv4 transfers
Date: 20 September 2016
AC's assessment of conformance with the Principles of Internet Number
2015-7 is one of a set of overlapping policies involving simplification
of section 8 specified transfer policy. Each takes a somewhat different
approach, and all have a degree of community support. Based on
community feedback at the upcoming ARIN 38 meeting in Dallas, we hope to
advance whichever of those proposals is best-supported by the community,
or craft and advance a unified proposal that incorporates the best
attributes of the proposals currently on the docket. Moving 2015-7 to
Recommended Draft will facilitate moving the best policy forward in a
ARIN transfer policy currently inherits all its demonstrated need
requirements for IPv4 transfers from NRPM sections 4. Because that
section was written primarily to deal with free pool allocations, it is
much more complicated than is really necessary for transfers. In
practice, ARIN staff applies much more lenient needs assessment to
section 8 IPv4 transfer requests than to free pool requests, as 24-month
needs are much more difficult to assess to the same level of detail.
This proposal seeks to dramatically simplify the needs assessment
process for 8.3 transfers, while still allowing organizations with
corner-case requirements to apply under existing policy if necessary.
Append the follwing bullet point to "Conditions on recipient of the
transfer" section in NRPM 8.3 and 8.4
A recipient of IPv4 number resources may, at its option, demonstrate
need by having an officer of the requesting organization attest that
they will use at least 50% of their aggregate IPv4 addresses (including
the requested resources) on an operational network within 24 months,
rather than the criteria enumerated in Section 4 of the NRPM.
