Did you know that you can influence how APNIC manages Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6 and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs))?
The APNIC Secretariat implements and delegates Internet number resources following APNIC policy, and those policies are decided by you, as part of the Internet community.
APNIC policy discussions are held at Open Policy Meetings (OPMs) coordinated by the Policy SIG (Special Interest Group) and on a mailing list. These forums are open to anyone who has an opinion about the best way to manage Internet number resources for the benefit of the entire community.
Submit a policy proposal
The first step to participating is to submit a policy proposal. The upcoming APNIC 51 OPM will be held over two sessions on Wednesday, 3 March 2021 and the deadline to submit a policy proposal is 31 January 2021.
You don’t have to be an expert to submit a proposal – everyone can participate – but there’s a handy guide to help with your submission if you have not developed a proposal before.
