Subject: [arin-announce] ARIN Board Suspends Waiting List Issuance Policy

At their business meeting in January 2019, the ARIN Board of Trustees,
in light of the potential misuse of number resources under NRPM section
4.1.8 (Unmet Requests), suspended issuance of number resources per NRPM
section (Fulfilling unmet needs), and referred NRPM section
4.1.8 to the ARIN Advisory Council for their recommendation. ARIN will
complete open transactions to waiting list organizations where IPv4
addresses have already been approved pending fee payment.

We will continue to accept and process IPv4 requests according to NRPM
4.1.8, and organizations may be added to the waiting list while waiting
list issuance is suspended. All future IPv4 address space issued under
this policy is subject to the outcome of pending policy review.
