prop-136: Registration Requirements

Proposal textprop-136-v001

Section 5.3 of APNIC Internet Number Resource Policies document is again broken down into three subsections (section 5.3.1, 5.3.2 and 5.3.3) based on each resource type. This proposal suggests to simply the policy document by combining the individual resource type registration requirements into one section for concise and easier for the community to understand and adopt.

Status at other RIRsIn most of the RIRs like Afrinic, LACNIC and Ripe NCC the registration requirements have been listed separately for IPv4, IPv6 and ASN under different clauses.
Secretariat impact assessment


This proposal appears to be straightforward. APNIC notes the simplifying and combining of
individual resource types “Registration Requirements”, and it is unlikely to change current practices
for evaluating requests.

This proposal would not require any changes to the registration system.

If this proposal reaches consensus, implementation can be completed within 3 months.
