        APNIC Secretariat is reviewing the policy proposals under discussion and seeks clarification to better understand the intention of prop-120-v001: Final /8 pool exhaustion plan.
        APNIC remains neutral and objective about the outcome of this discussion and only requires clarification to ensure correct implementation should the proposal reach consensus.
        - After exhaustion, will initial resource requests from new Members be filled before unmet requests from Members already on the waiting list prior to exhaustion? Or will this priority only apply to requests submitted after the exhaustion date?
        We appreciate your clarification.

            before the meeting.
            The comment period on the mailing list before an APNIC meeting is an
            important part of the policy development process. We encourage you to
            express your views on the proposal:

            1. Problem statement
            APNIC makes IPv4 address delegation from two IPv4 pools. These are the
            103/8 (Final /8) pool and the non-103/8 IPv4 Recovered pool.
            Currently, there are no IPv4 addresses in the non-103/8 IPv4 Recovered
            pool and APNIC manages a Recovered Pool Waiting List for approved
            requests. And, based on the Geoff's projection (*1), the 103/8 (Final
            /8) pool will be exhausted in a few years.
            It will be necessary to make a guidance about how to manage the IPv4
            delegation after both IPv4 pools exhaustion.
            2. Objective of policy change
            To provide a guidance for 103/8 pool exhaustion.
            3. Situation in other regions
            4. Proposed policy solution
            Guidance for 103/8 pool exhaustion:
              - The first time an approved request cannot be fulfilled from the 103/8 
                pool, Final /8 delegations will end.
              - APNIC will begin to manage only one (Recovered) IPv4 pool containing 
                any residual 103/8 space and all future returns, including 103/8 returns.
              - Each new account holder can receive up to a /21 from the IPv4
                Recovered pool.
              - Existing account holders who have not yet received the maximum /21
                from the two pools may continue to apply for space from the Recovered
                pool until they have received a maximum /21 from the two pools.
              - A waiting list will be created if approved requests cannot be 
                fulfilled. Each new account holder will be given priority in the
                waiting list.
            5. Advantages / Disadvantages
              - Possible to avoid confusion at 103/8 address pool exhaustion date
            6. Impact on resource holders
            No impact to resource holders.
