Transfer of AS Numbers now possible with new APNIC policy
Today, 16 April 2014, APNIC implemented a change in Autonomous System
Numbers policy which will permit the transfer of AS Numbers between
APNIC account holders. The proposal reached consensus during APNIC 36 in
Xi'An, China in August 2013.
The policy proposal implemented is:
- prop-107: AS number transfer policy proposal
This policy would permit the transfer of Autonomous System Numbers
(ASNs) within the APNIC region and between regions with compatible
inter-regional ASN transfer policies.
No other Regional Internet Registry currently has an inter-RIR ASN
transfer policy that would permit the transfer of ASNs between regions.
The policy change required edits to two documents. The comment period
for the draft documents incorporating these policies ended on 10 January
2014. The following updated documents are now officially active:
- Policies for Autonomous System number management in the Asia
- APNIC transfer, merger, acquisition, and takeover policy
For more information on the history of APNIC policy proposals, see the
Policy Proposals page.
