Policy SIG

Andy Linton, who ran unopposed, was re-elected as Policy SIG Chair. Congratulations to the new Co-Chairs, Skeeve Stevens (first Co-Chair, two-year term) and Masato Yamanishi (second Co-Chair, one-year term). APNIC would like to thank outgoing Co-Chair, Terence Zhang, for his contribution.

The SIG Chair suggested a small working group be formed to discuss IPv6 policy holistically. The Chair is currently seeking volunteers to participate.

Four policy proposals were discussed. The following proposal reached consensus and will progress to the 8-week comment period:

  • prop-096: Maintaining demonstrated needs requirement in transfer policy after the final /8 phase

The following proposals did not reach consensus, and were sent back to the mailing list for further discussion:

  • prop-098: Optimizing IPv6 allocation strategies (simplified) was sent back to the mailing list and to the new working group
  • prop-099: IPv6 Reservation for large networks was sent back to the mailing list.
  • prop-100: National IP Address Plan - Allocation of country-wide IP address blocks


Elections for the NIR SIG Chair and Co-Chairs were held. Congratulations to Izumi Okutani on her re-election as Chair and Jessica Shen and Ji-Young Li on their elections as Co-Chairs. APNIC would like to thank outgoing Co-Chair, Wendy Zhao, for her contribution.
