      -----------------------------
      Under this new policy, historical resources can be transferred to APNIC
      members without the need for technical review or approval, on condition that
      the transferred resources become subject to all current policies. The holder
      of the historical resource must be verified and the recipient of the
      transfer must be an APNIC member.
      
      This policy implements the consensus decision reached at APNIC 16 and
      endorsed by the Executive Council on 24 December 2003 in relation to
      proposal prop-006-v001.
      
      The policy becomes effective on 19th March 2004. The new policy document is

      deprecated.
