Dear SIG membersBelow is a summary report of the status of proposals following the Policy SIG held during APNIC 27 today.
The following proposals were abandoned following a lack of community support:
prop-060: Change in the criteria for the recognition of NIRs in the APNIC region prop-063: Reducing timeframe of IPv4 allocations from twelve to six months prop-070: Maximum IPv4 allocation size The following proposals were withdrawn: prop-067: A simple transfer proposal prop-068: Inter-RIR transfer policy The following proposals reached consensus: prop-050: IPv4 address transfers (with modifications to be detailed in a subsequent email to this list) prop-069: Global policy proposal for the allocation of IPv4 blocks to Regional Internet Registries Next steps ---------- 1. The SIG Chairs report on the status of proposals at the APNIC Member Meeting (AMM). 2. Proposals that reach consensus at both the Policy SIG and the AMM are then returned to the Policy SIG mailing list for an eight-week comment period. 3. If no substantial objections are received during the final comment period, the proposals are deemed to have reached consensus at each stage of the policy development process. At this point, the SIG Chairs forward the proposals to the APNIC Executive Council (EC) for endorsement. 4. If the APNIC EC endorses the proposals, the APNIC Secretariat begins work on implementation of the proposals. Implementation usually takes a minimum of three months, but may take more depending on the implementation complexity.
