      • Dear colleagues,

        Part of prop-117: "Returned IPv4 address management and Final /8 exhaustion",
        reached consensus at the APNIC 43 Policy SIG and then later at the AGM.

        Components of the proposal regarding which pool 103/8 blocks should be
        returned to reached consensus. There was no agreement on the proposal for
        Final /8 pool exhaustion procedures.

        A new version prop-117-v003 was created to make it clear which part of
        the proposal is reaching the final Comment Period.

        Synopsis:
        ---------

        The proposed policy solution reaching consensus is

        Handling returned address:
          - Recovered 103/8 space will be placed in the 103/8 (Final /8) pool.
          - Recovered non-103/8 space will be placed in the IPv4 Recovered pool.

        This proposal will now move to the next step in the APNIC Policy
        Development Process and is being returned to the Policy SIG mailing list
        for the final Comment Period.

        At the end of this period the Policy SIG Chairs will evaluate comments
        made and determine if the consensus reached at APNIC 43 still holds. The
        Chairs may extend the Comment Period to a maximum of eight (8) weeks to
        allow further discussion.

        If consensus holds, the Chair of the Policy SIG will ask the APNIC Executive
        Council to endorse the proposal for implementation.

           - Send all comments and questions to: <sig-policy at apnic dot net>
           - Deadline for comments:  23:59 (UTC +10) Wednesday, 12 April 2017

        Proposal details, including the full text of the proposal, history, and
        links to previous versions are available at:

        1. Problem statement
        --------------------

        APNIC currently makes delegations from two IPv4 pools. These are the
        103/8 (Final /8) pool and the non-103/8 IPv4 Recovered pool.

        With current policy, all returned address space, including 103/8 blocks,
        will be merged into the IPv4 Recovered pool.

        If a 103/8 block is returned, it is placed in the IPv4 Recovered pool
        and re-distributed as returned space. Some organisations may receive
        duplicate blocks from 103/8: one under the final /8 policy, the other
        under the returned pool policy.

        Current APNIC Policy requires account holders to receive address space
        from the 103/8 (Final /8) pool before they can apply for address space
        from the Recovered pool.

        APNIC currently manages a Recovered Pool Waiting List for approved
        requests that cannot be met from the IPv4 Recovered pool.


        2. Objective of policy change
        -----------------------------

        To simplify the address pool management and to provide guidance for
        103/8 pool exhaustion.


        3. Situation in other regions
        -----------------------------

        None.


        4. Proposed policy solution
        ---------------------------

        Handling returned address:
          - Recovered 103/8 space will be placed in the 103/8 (Final /8) pool.
          - Recovered non-103/8 space will be placed in the IPv4 Recovered pool.


        5. Advantages / Disadvantages
        -----------------------------

        Advantages:

          - Simplifying management of remaining IPv4 address pools.

        Disadvantages:

        None.


        6. Impact on resource holders
        ------------------------------

        No impact to resource holders.
