Upcoming APNIC policy implementations
On 4 August 2008, APNIC will implement three policy proposals that
reached consensus at APNIC 25 in Taipei, Taiwan in February 2008. The
APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals during their May
2008 meeting. The three policy changes are:
- Changing the minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22
This change will make it easier for small ISPs to receive direct
allocations from APNIC.
- Adding an alternative IPv6 initial allocation criteria
This change will make it easier for more ISPs to receive IPv6
allocations from APNIC by enabling current LIRs with IPv4
allocations to receive IPv6 initial allocations without a plan
making 200 assignments.
- Revising the reverse DNS zone delegation section of "Operational
policies for National Internet Registries in the APNIC region"
This change updates the document to include a reference to IPv6
reverse delegations and aligns reverse DNS methods for NIRs with
reverse DNS methods available to other APNIC members.
To view the history of these policy proposals, see:
