New APNIC policies now active _______________________________________________________________________
Today, 9 August 2011, APNIC implements two policy proposals that reached consensus during APNIC 31 in Hong Kong during February 2011.
The two policy proposals implemented are:
prop-083 Alternative criteria for subsequent IPv6 allocations
This proposal enables current APNIC account holders with existing IPv6 allocations to receive subsequent IPv6 allocations from APNIC under additional criteria.
prop-095 Inter-RIR IPv4 address transfer proposal
This is a proposal to allow and define a mechanism for the transfer of IPv4 address space between APNIC account holders and organizations in other RIR region(s), providing that the counterpart RIR has a policy that allows transfers of address space with APNIC account holders.
Updated policy documents ------------------------
The two policy changes required edits to three documents. The comment period for the draft documents incorporating these policies ended on 8 August 2011. The following updated documents are now officially active:
IPv6 address allocation and assignment policy http://www.apnic.net/policy/ipv6-address-policy
APNIC transfer, merger, acquisition, and takeover policy http://www.apnic.net/policy/transfer-policy
