APNIC attended ARIN 37 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, from 17 to 20 April 2016.

ARIN 37 considered a range of policy issues and included updates from ARIN, a Members meeting, and reports from other RIRs including APNIC.

ARIN 37 policy update

  • ARIN-2015-3: Remove 30-day utilization requirement in end user policy – this proposal moved to Last Call.
  • ARIN-2015-9: Eliminating needs-based evaluation for Section 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 transfers of IPv4 netblocks – this proposal was abandoned as there was insufficient community support.
  • The following draft policies are still under consideration by the ARIN AC:
    •  ARIN-2015-2: Modify 8.4 (Inter-RIR transfers to specified recipients)
    •  ARIN-2015-7: Simplified requirements for demonstrated need to IPv4 transfers
    •  ARIN 2016-1: Reserved Pool Transfer policy.

APNIC activities included

  • APNIC’s Internet Policy Consultant, Adam Gosling, presented the APNIC Update on the activities of the Secretariat.
