Open Policy Meeting (Policy SIG)
The APNIC Open Policy Meeting (OPM) is an open forum to develop policies that relate to the management and use of Internet number resources within the Asia Pacific region. These include policies for resource allocation, recovery and transfer, and for resource registration within whois, reverse DNS, RPKI and related services.
The Open Policy Meeting (OPM) had a presentation about the following:
- What happened with addresses in 2023 (Geoff Huston)
- Proposed changes to the PDP (Bertrand Cherrier)
The following policy proposals reached consensus at the OPM and AGM:
- prop-147: Historical Resources Management
- prop-150: ROA/whois object with Private, Reserved and Unallocated (reserved/available) Origin ASN
- prop-151: Restricting non-hierarchical as-set
The following proposal was not put for consensus and will go back to the mailing list, as the version discussed at the OPM was not the same version that was submitted to the mailing list:
- prop-149: Change of maximum delegation for less than /21 total IPv4 holdings
Translated summaries of the policy proposals
The policy proposals discussed at the APNIC 55 OPM have been translated into the following languages.
