Consultation Closed: Retirement of IPv4 Countdown Plan

On 22 April 2016, ARIN concluded its community consultation regarding
retirement of the IPv4 Countdown Plan.

ARIN thanks those that provided feedback during the consultation. Based
on community feedback, ARIN staff will retire the IPv4 Countdown Plan
effective 1 June 2016.  As outlined in the consultation, retiring the
IPv4 Countdown Plan involves the cessation of Phase 4 processing
procedures in our future review of IPv4 assignment/allocation requests.
These requests are destined for the waiting list for unmet IPv4
requests, and going forward they will be handled via normal processes
and no longer be serialized via team review of IPv4 request tickets.
Removing these procedures would allow the recovered staff time to be
redirected to other registration related work activities inside the ARIN
Registration Services Department, such as handling the increasing number
of IPv4 transfers.

Please contact info@... should you have any questions.
