Dear SIG Members
In its recent LACNIC 22 meeting, from 27-31 October in Santiago Chile, the LACNIC community considered two policy proposals.
The first, a proposal to change the LACNIC PDP, failed to reach consensus and was returned to the list. The rationale for the proposal is to respond to "Non-compliances with the policy development process as it is now defined have been observed, particularly in regard to the specified dates/timeline". It also seeks to implement an appeals process in case a member of the community feels affected by decisions made during the policy development and adoption process.
The second is LAC-2014-2: Modification to the text describing ASN distribution requirements reached consensus and is now in a final comment period.
The proposal changes the ASN delegation criteria in such a way that the multi-homing requirement is no longer a requirement. If passed, the policy would require only that an network operator needs to interconnect with one other network ASN that has a different routing policy to its own.
