Upcoming APNIC policy implementations _______________________________________________________________________
On 10 February 2009, APNIC will implement three policy proposals that reached consensus during APNIC 28 in Beijing, China in August 2009. The APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals during their November 2009 meeting. The three policy changes are:
- Removing policy restrictions on the transfer of registration of IPv4 address allocations and IPv4 portable address assignments between current APNIC account holders.
This change aims to ensure that the APNIC registry reflects the true status of IPv4 resource holdings, reducing risks to the routing and addressing infrastructure integrity of the network and providing a stronger incentive for unused IPv4 address space to return to active use during the IPv6 transition.
- Providing alternative simplified criteria that allows a Member with existing IPv4 space to qualify for an appropriately sized IPv6 block under the matching IPv6 policy and request that IPv6 block through a simple online form.
This change aims to encourage greater uptake of IPv6 addresses amongst APNIC Members who have IPv4 space.
- Adding the ability to recover unused historical AS numbers for eventual reassignment to other APNIC account holders.
This change aims to release unused AS numbers back into the unassigned pool.
To view the history of these policy proposals, see:
