Dear colleagues,

Happy new year to all of you.

We'd like to remind you that the deadline for policy proposals is now just 10 days away on Friday, 17 January 2014.

Looking forward to seeing you in Bangkok next month if you are at APNIC 37. If you aren't able to attend then we hope you can participate on line.

Dear Colleagues,

APNIC policies are determined by an open, established, and bottom-up
consensus Policy Development Process (PDP). Anybody can propose a policy
change, participate in the discussion of proposed changes, and express
their support or objection for any proposal.

This PDP begins when somebody submits a Policy Proposal, or a problem
statement to the APNIC Policy SIG Chairs. Once considered and accepted
by the SIG Chairs, the proposal must be posted to Policy SIG mailing
list at least four weeks before the APNIC 37 Policy SIG meeting in
Bangkok, Thailand on 18 February 2014.

To be considered for consensus at the APNIC 37 OPM, policy proposals
must be submitted by Friday, 17 January 2014.

How to submit your Policy Proposal

There are two ways to submit a policy proposal to the Policy SIG Chairs:

1. Use the online form at:

2. Send your proposal in TEXT format to <>.

If you are unsure of the solution to your policy issue, whether your
policy idea has merit, or if it is covered by existing policy, you are
encouraged to complete only the Problem Statement part of your proposal.
The community can then assist in developing the best solution.
