Resource Policy Manual - DRAFT


1. Introduction

Policies for managing IP number resources in the AFRINIC service region are created through a Policy Development Process (PDP) which describes the steps through which policy proposals are submitted, considered, debated (by the community) and adopted (by AFRINIC). This document contains ratified and implemented policies that have gone through the PDP as described in 3.0 of the same document (below).

AFRINIC is a non-for-profit independent organisation serving as one of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIR's). Its service region incorporates the African continent and part of the Indian Ocean (Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar, Comoros and Reunion).

The Soft Landing section is missing the 10%rule (what percentage can be used outside of the area). As this was the first thing I looked for - I have no idea what else might be missing.

The "10%" requirement appears to have been removed at one point during the revisions and discussions. The final content restricting out-of-region usage reads: "AfriNIC resources are for AfriNIC service region and any use outside the region should be solely in support of connectivity back to the AfriNIC region"
