Hi Louie, Louis Lee said the following on 26/08/10 12:23 :Is there an APNIC policy which says that it has to return unused address space to IANA?Not that I am aware of. John Curran did state ARIN's position for clarification to Randy's concerns:Yup, saw that. Maybe the APNIC Secretariat can clarify APNIC's situation? I suspect it would be the same as ARIN's actually.
APNIC has no policy regarding the return of addresses to IANA. To date, APNIC has not returned any reclaimed space to IANA. Instead, it has been returned to the Resource Quality Assurance Pool for redistribution to APNIC account holders, as discussed in the plenary this morning at APNIC 30.
I hope this helps. Sam -- _____________________________________________________________________ Samantha Dickinson email: sam at apnic dot net Senior Policy Specialist, APNIC sip: sam at voip dot apnic dot net http://www.apnic.net phone: +61 7 3858 3100
