Inter-RIR IPv4 transfers begin

ARIN announced today the implementation of the Inter-RIR IPv4 transfer policy (2011-1).  This policy, which has been discussed over the past two meetings was controversial for a number of reasons including that it would potentially move a lot of address space from the ARIN region to other regions.

Since the policy requires a compatible policy with each RIR only the APNIC region will currently be able to perform transfers under this policy.

ARIN has released new guidelines for “8.4 Inter-RIR Transfers to Specified Recipients”.

The announcement also included a note about a twitter discussion to be held August 8th to discuss the new policy.
