This a proposal to change the "IPv6 address allocation and assignment policy" to allow portable (that is, provider independent or PI) assignments of IPv6 address blocks to be made by APNIC to any organization with due justification and payment of standard fees, removing the current requirement that the requestor is or plans to be multihomed.
|Relevant forum||Policy SIG|
|Status at other RIRs|
APNIC is now the only RIR remaining with an absolute requirement for multihoming for portable address assignments.
