IPv4 address blocks received by APNIC are added to the final /8 pool and redistributed according to the final /8 policy (prop-088). This policy proposes to define a separate distribution policy for all non-103 IPv4 address blocks in the APNIC pool, to start the distributions once "Global policy for post exhaustion IPv4 allocation mechanisms by the IANA" is activated.
