New APNIC policies now active

On 16 February 2008, APNIC implemented three policy proposals that
reached consensus during APNIC 26 in Christchurch, New Zealand in August
2008. The APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals during
their November 2008 meeting. The three proposals implemented are:

     prop-062: Use of final /8

         When the total remaining space in the unallocated APNIC address
         pool reaches a threshold of one /8, the following policies will
         come into force:

           - Each APNIC account holder that meets the criteria for
             an IPv4 allocation will be eligible to request and receive a
             single allocation no larger than the minimum allocation

           - A /16 will be held in reserve for future uses, as yet

     prop-064: Change to assignment policy for AS numbers

         From 1 July 2009, networks requesting a two-byte AS number from
         APNIC must demonstrate that a four-byte only AS number is

     prop-066: Ensuring efficient use of historical IPv4 resources

         The utilization of historical IPv4 address space will now be
         taken into account when any organization holding historical IPv4
         addresses requests more IPv4 from APNIC.

Updated policy documents

The comment period for the draft documents incorporating these policies
has ended. The updated documents are now officially active:

     Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific

     Policies for historical Internet resources in the APNIC Whois
     Policies for Autonomous System number management in the Asia
     Pacific region
