Implementation of Policies in the AFRINIC Service Region

Published On -

The community and AFRINIC members are hereby informed that the following policies have been implemented:

  • IPv6 Policy and references Update (CPM 6.0, 6.1 and 6.6.4.1. Deleted the previous 6.5.4.2 - which is now replaced by the previous 6.5.4.3)
  • IPv6 Initial Allocation Update (CPM 6.5.1.1, 6.5.1.2, 6.5.1.3 and 6.5.2.3).

Partly implemented:

  • Lame Delegations in the AFRINIC Reverse DNS (CPM 10.7) - The policy requires that lame name servers be deleted from the whois database. We are still in the process of ensuring that there are no false positives, and will have this part fully implemented in Q1 2019. At the moment, all identified lame name servers are relayed to the contacts of the concerned objects, without any action being taken from AFRINIC.
  • IPv6 PI Update (CPM 6.8, 6.8.1, 6.8.2, 6.8.3 and new section 6.8.4) – pending automation of CPM 6.8.2(b)(iv) and 8.6.2 (b)(v)

The Consolidated Policy Manual (CPM) has been updated to version 1.3 to include the above implemented policies.
