[sig-policy] New APNIC policies now active
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
IPv6 address allocation and assignment policy
APNIC transfer, merger, acquisition, and takeover policy
APNIC guidelines for IPv6 allocation and assignment requests
