How to participate in the policy process

Consensus Policy Making

IP addresses and AS numbers are shared resources, available for use by anyone who can demonstrate the need for them. APNIC policies ensure these resources are distributed fairly and consistently across the whole Asia Pacific region. Proposed policy changes are discussed in the Policy SIG.

APNIC policies are decided by the Asia Pacific community in a consensus decision-making process that is:

  • Open
  • Transparent
  • Bottom-up
