APNIC Processes First Inter-RIR IPv4 Transfer from ARIN
A /24 block of IPv4 addresses has been transferred from the ARIN region to an APNIC Member under the inter-RIR transfer process.
A /24 block of IPv4 addresses has been transferred from the ARIN region to an APNIC Member under the inter-RIR transfer process. The APNIC Whois database and reverse DNS have been updated to reflect these changes, making this transfer a success.
This is the first inter-RIR IPv4 transfer case after the policy prop-095: Inter-RIR IPv4 address transfer proposal was implemented. Under the policy, APNIC will recognize inter-RIR IPv4 address transfers only when the counterpart RIR has an inter-RIR transfer policy that permits the transfer of address space between APNIC and its own region.

While APNIC has streamlined its processes to facilitate IPv4 transfers, we strongly encourage all network operators to prepare for the transition to IPv6, a protocol for which ample address space is available.
See APNIC's IPv6 program page for more information.
