New APNIC policies now active

On February 2010, APNIC implemented three policy proposals that reached
consensus during APNIC 28 in Beijing, China in August 2009. The APNIC
Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals during their November
2009 meeting. The three policies implemented are:

     prop-050: IPv4 address transfers

        Policy restrictions on the transfer of registration of IPv4
        address allocations and IPv4 portable address assignments
        between current APNIC account holders have now been removed.

     prop-073: Simplifying allocation/assignment of IPv6 to APNIC
     members with existing IPv4 addresses

        There is now alternative simplified criteria that allows a
        Member with existing IPv4 space to qualify for an appropriately
        sized IPv6 block under the matching IPv6 policy and request that
        IPv6 block through a simple online form.

     prop-075: Ensuring efficient use of historical AS numbers

        APNIC now has the ability to recover unused historical AS
        numbers for eventual reassignment to other APNIC account holders.

Updated policy documents

The comment period for the draft documents incorporating these policies
ended on 8 February 2010. The updated documents are now officially

     Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific

     IPv6 address allocation and assignment policy

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

     APNIC transfer, merger, acquisition and takeover policies
