Upcoming APNIC policy implementations

On 16 February 2009, APNIC will implement three policy proposals that
reached consensus during APNIC 26 in Christchurch, New Zealand in August
2008. The APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals during
their November 2008 meeting. The three policy changes are:

    - Defining how APNIC should distribute the final /8 worth of IPv4
      addresses from its unallocated pool

      This change aims to ensure that during the transition to IPv6,
      LIRs can still participate in the IPv4 Internet while they
      deploy services using the IPv6 Internet.

    - Including the utilization rate of historical IPv4 addresses
      when assessing an LIR's request for more IPv4 addresses.

      This change brings utilization of historical IPv4 addresses
      into line with current best practices for address management.
      It will ensure that organizations are using scarce IPv4
      address space resources to the fullest extent possible.

    - Including an additional date in the timetable for moving from
      two-byte only AS numbers to four-byte only AS numbers

      This change aims to create greater awareness within the
      community for the need to support 4-byte AS numbers without
      mandating an absolute final adoption of 4-byte AS numbers.

To view the history of these policy proposals, see:

    prop-062: Use of final /8

    prop-064: Change to assignment policy for AS numbers

    prop-066: Ensuring efficient use of historical IPv4 resources

APNIC policies are developed by the membership and broader Internet
community. To have your say on policy proposals to be presented at
APNIC 27 in Manila, Philippines, February 2009, join the Policy SIG
