Upcoming APNIC policy implementations

On 4 August 2008, APNIC will implement two policy proposals that
reached consensus at the APNIC 25 Policy SIG in Taipei, Taiwan in
February 2008. The APNIC Executive Council (EC) endorsed the proposals
during their May 2008 meeting. The two policy changes are:

      - Changing the minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22

        This change will make it easier for small ISPs to receive direct
        allocations from APNIC.

      - Adding an alternative IPv6 initial allocation criteria

        This change will make it easier for more ISPs to receive IPv6
        allocations from APNIC by enabling current LIRs with IPv4
        allocations to receive IPv6 initial allocations without a plan
        making 200 assignments.

To view the history of these policy proposals, see:

      prop-053: Changing minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22

      prop-057: Proposal to change IPv6 initial allocation criteria
