The Policy specifies a dedicated "irt" object to be used as the preferred place to publish abuse public contact information within the AFRINIC service region.
The object can be referenced in the inetnum, inet6num and aut-num objects in the AFRINIC Whois Database. It provides a more accurate and efficient way for abuse reports to reach the correct network contact through The AFRINIC whois database.
