APNIC implements three new policy proposals
APNIC implements three policy changes.
The APNIC Secretariat has now implemented the following policy proposals:
prop-053: Changing minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22
- The minimum allocation size has been reduced to /22
- Two of the criteria for an initial allocation have been updated to show:
- An LIR must have used a /24 from their upstream provider or demonstrate an immediate need for a /24
- An LIR must demonstrate a detailed plan for use of a /23 within a year
prop-054: NIR operational policy document revision
- The document now includes a reference to ip6.arpa
- The reverse DNS processes have been updated
- The appendix has been removed
prop-057: Proposal to change IPv6 initial allocation criteria
- Current LIRs with an existing IPv4 allocation from APNIC or an NIR can now justify an IPv6 initial allocation without a documenting a plan for making 200 assignments.
Updated policy documents
The comment period for the draft documents incorporating these polices has ended. The updated documents are now officially active:
- Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific region
- IPv6 address allocation and assignment policy
- APNIC guidelines for IPv6 allocation and assignment requests
- Operational policies for National Internet Registries in the APNIC region
