Transfer of AS Numbers now possible with new APNIC policy_________________________________________________
Today, 16 April 2014, APNIC implemented a change in Autonomous SystemNumbers policy which will permit the transfer of AS Numbers betweenAPNIC account holders. The proposal reached consensus during APNIC 36 inXi'An, China in August 2013.
The policy proposal implemented is:
Â Â - prop-107: AS number transfer policy proposal
Â Â Â This policy would permit the transfer of Autonomous System NumbersÂ Â Â (ASNs) within the APNIC region and between regions with compatibleÂ Â Â inter-regional ASN transfer policies.
No other Regional Internet Registry currently has an inter-RIR ASNtransfer policy that would permit the transfer of ASNs between regions.
