      IPv6 ALLOCATION SERVICES COMMENCE
      
      APNIC is pleased to announce that IPv6 allocation services are now
      available to our members. Following IANA's recent delegation of IPv6
      address ranges to the Regional Internet Registries, APNIC is now able to
      provide sub-TLA allocations in accordance with the Provisional IPv6
      Assignment and Allocation policies and with our own procedures.
      
      It is important to note that because of the provisional nature of the
      policy document, we expect that IPv6 policies and procedures will evolve
      with experience. The commencement of IPv6 allocations is a significant
      landmark in the evolution of the Internet and APNIC looks forward to
      working with the membership in successfully launching and developing these
      services.
      
      Links to the Sub-TLA Request form, the policy document, an IPv6 FAQ, and
      more background to the delegations from IANA are available at
      http://www.apnic.net/drafts/ipv6/
      
      If you have any questions or comments about IPv6 allocation services,
      please feel free to contact us.

      REGIONAL REGISTRIES SUBMIT ICANN ASO PROPOSAL
      (Expressions of Support Requested - see below)
      
      The 3 Regional Internet Registries, APNIC, ARIN, and RIPE NCC, have
      recently finalised and submitted a joint proposal to form the Address
      Supporting Organisation (ASO) of the Internet Corporation for Assigned
      Names and Numbers (ICANN). This proposal will be considered for approval
      at the forthcoming ICANN meeting in Santiago, Chile.
      
      The final ASO proposal is the result of numerous discussions within the
      Registry memberships, communities, and associated fora, involving wide
      participation by interested parties and a collective effort by all of the
      Registries. It incorporates inputs received over many months of
      discussions, and those received more recently since the publication of a
      final draft proposal.
      
      Expressions of Support 
      ======================
      The Regional Internet Registries are now calling for explicit expressions
      of support for this ASO proposal, from all members and interested parties.
      
      Full details of the call for expressions of support and links to various
      documents, including the ASO proposal and associated cover letter to ICANN
      are available at http://www.apnic.net/news/icann/
