      APNIC Policy Implementation 9 May 2011
      Today, the APNIC Secretariat implemented three policy proposals that
      reached consensus at APNIC 31 Hong Kong in February 2011.
      On 6 May 2011 the APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals
      for immediate implementation.
      As a result, APNIC today issued a call for final editorial comments on
      two, provisionally-active, draft policy documents.
      The policy proposals being implemented are:
           prop-094 Removing renumbering requirement from final /8 policy
           prop-093 Reducing the minimum delegation size for the final /8
           prop-088 Distribution of IPv4 addresses once the final /8 period
      For more information, see the history of these policy proposals at:
      Updated policy documents
      The comment period for the drafts of these provisionally-active
      documents will end on 6 June 2011. However, APNIC is now delegating
      IPv4 addresses in accordance with the principles in these policies.
           - Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific
           - Policy environment for Internet number resource distribution in
             the Asia Pacific
      Pending Implementation
      The following two policies, endorsed by the APNIC EC on 6 May 2011,
      will be implemented by APNIC in the third quarter of 2011.
            prop-095  Inter-RIR IPv4 address transfer proposal
            prop-083  Alternative criteria for subsequent IPv6 allocations
      Global Policy
      The final proposal endorsed by the APNIC EC on 6 May 2011, is prop-
      097: Global policy for post exhaustion IPv4 allocation mechanisms by
      the IANA. APNIC is the first RIR community to adopt this proposal.
      The proposal must be adopted in all four remaining RIR regions before
      it can proceed to the final stages of the global policy development
      process. For the status of this proposal, see:
