Today, 27 May 2014, APNIC will implement prop-105: Distribution of returned IPv4 address blocks.
This policy proposes to define a separate distribution policy for all non-103/8 IPv4 address blocks in the APNIC pool, to start the distributions once the Global Policy for Post Exhaustion IPv4 Allocation Mechanisms by the IANA is activated.
The proposal reached consensus at APNIC 36 Xian, China in August 2013 and was endorsed by the APNIC Executive Council in November 2013. This policy is implemented following the activation of the Recovered IPv4 Pool under the Global policy for post exhaustion IPv4 allocation mechanisms by the IANA.
The policy required edits to the APNIC Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific region at Section 3.
