AFRINIC Board ratifies Policy Proposal AFPUB-2016-V4-003-DRAFT03: IPv4 Resources transfer within the AFRINIC Region


26 April 2017The community is hereby informed that at its regular meeting held on 19 April 2017, the AFRINIC Board resolved to ratify the policy proposal AFPUB-2016-V4-003-DRAFT03 (IPv4 Resources Transfer within the AFRINIC region).


Having received and considered a detailed report from the Policy Development Working Group Co-chairs on discussions and life cycle through the Policy Development Process (PDP), the Board determined that the proposal properly followed the PDP and considered the Co-Chairs’ recommendation to ratify it immediately.


The policy will be implemented by AFRINIC starting with the process to modify the current Registration Services Agreement (RSA) in order to remove the current restrictions that prohibit number resource transfers.


A draft RSA, when ready, will be shared with AFRINIC members for comments before it is considered for adoption by the Board.


Any comments or inquiry about the implementation plan for this policy can be sent to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
