Folks -

  If you or your organization hold address blocks, please take the time to set
  the Abuse point-of-contact (POC) for your organization as soon as possible.
  Information from the Tech contact will be used for your organization's Abuse
  contact if an Abuse contact is not added to the record.   Any address holder
  can update their contact information (including legacy IPv4 resources); no fee
  or contract is necessary to update your contact information.

ARIN is preparing to implement Policy 2010-14: Standardize IP Reassignment Registration Requirements in late August.

When this policy is implemented, all existing Organization records will be modified to enforce this new policy requirement, and all new Organization registration records (Org IDs) will need to include an Abuse POC (in addition to the already required Admin and Tech). ARIN Online, REST, and templates

If an existing Org ID does not have an Abuse POC already listed, the existing Tech POC (s) will also become the Abuse POC(s) by default. We strongly urge all customers to review and update their organization information data, and to add an Abuse POC if one is not currently listed. Again, if a new Abuse POC is not added to the record, the existing Tech POC (s) will also become the Abuse POC(s) by default.

If there are any questions, please contact the Registration Services department at hostmaster at<mailto:hostmaster at>.
