ARIN is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.0 of its Legacy
Registration Services Agreement ("LRSA"). On 4 November 2011 ARIN
concluded its consultation with the community with regards to the Legacy
Registration Services Agreement (LRSA) 3.0, the first fundamental
rewrite of the LRSA introduced in 2007. The revisions found in version
3.0 were based on the information and feedback obtained during the
execution of over 500 LRSAs as well as community feedback received
during the community consultation referenced above.

ARIN has simplified the LRSA language in order to more clearly identify
and describe the respective rights, duties and obligations of ARIN and
Legacy Holders. In addition, edits were made to narrow the differences
between our Registration Services Agreement (“RSA”) and our LRSA. These
changes also provide clarity with respect to conditions when ARIN will
seek resource utilization from the Legacy holder and conditions when
ARIN may revoke resources. Information regarding the differences between
LRSA 2.2 and LRSA 3.0 can be found along with additional details and
answers to many of the typical questions that ARIN receives about the
Legacy RSA in the Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQ”) at:

The previous version of the LRSA, version 2.2, will remain on our
website for comparison and review for the next 90 days. Please feel free
to compare the two documents and observe the updates and modifications
that have been incorporated into LRSA 3.0.

Services Help Desk at +1-703-227-9886 or send an email to billing at

Nothing in this announcement alters or otherwise modifies any terms of
the LRSA.
