APNIC Policy Implementation 9 May 2011
Today, the APNIC Secretariat implemented three policy proposals that
reached consensus at APNIC 31 Hong Kong in February 2011.
On 6 May 2011 the APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals
for immediate implementation.
As a result, APNIC today issued a call for final editorial comments on
two, provisionally-active, draft policy documents.
The policy proposals being implemented are:
prop-094 Removing renumbering requirement from final /8 policy
prop-093 Reducing the minimum delegation size for the final /8
prop-088 Distribution of IPv4 addresses once the final /8 period
For more information, see the history of these policy proposals at:
Updated policy documents
The comment period for the drafts of these provisionally-active
documents will end on 6 June 2011. However, APNIC is now delegating
IPv4 addresses in accordance with the principles in these policies.
- Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific
- Policy environment for Internet number resource distribution in
the Asia Pacific
The following two policies, endorsed by the APNIC EC on 6 May 2011,
will be implemented by APNIC in the third quarter of 2011.
prop-095 Inter-RIR IPv4 address transfer proposal
prop-083 Alternative criteria for subsequent IPv6 allocations
The final proposal endorsed by the APNIC EC on 6 May 2011, is prop-
097: Global policy for post exhaustion IPv4 allocation mechanisms by
the IANA. APNIC is the first RIR community to adopt this proposal.
The proposal must be adopted in all four remaining RIR regions before
it can proceed to the final stages of the global policy development
process. For the status of this proposal, see:
