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:

     prop-053: Changing minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22

     prop-057: Proposal to change IPv6 initial allocation criteria

     prop-054: NIR operational policy document revision
