Time is running out for organizations holding legacy resources to sign a Legacy Registration Services Agreement (LRSA) and become an ARIN Service Member before the fee cap expires on 31 December 2023. As previously announced, ARIN will no longer offer this annual legacy fee cap for any legacy resources brought under a Registration Services Agreement (RSA/LRSA) after 31 December 2023. All organizations with active LRSAs entered into prior to 1 January 2024 will continue to have their fees capped for legacy resources covered before that date per the annual legacy fee cap.
ARIN thanks those who provided valuable feedback during this consultation on pending functionality for automatic creation of Internet Routing Registry (IRR) Route Objects for uncovered Route Origin Authorizations (ROAs).

Regards, John Curran President and CEO American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
The ARIN Board of Trustees, at its 15 August 2023 meeting, adopted a new ARIN Fee Schedule effective 1 January 2024. The new Fee Schedule reflects proposed modifications and community feedback collected from the Community Consultation that concluded on 30 July 2023. New fees will be reflected in invoices due on and after 1 January 2024. In 2022, ARIN transitioned end user customers to the Registration Services Plan (RSP) Fee Schedule, based on total IPv4 and IPv6 resources held, to ensure costs were distributed in an equitable manner by eliminating the fee differentiation between ISP and end user organizations.
At their meeting on 18 July 2023, the Board of Trustees adopted the following: ARIN-2021-8: Deprecation of the ‘Autonomous System Originations’ Field ARIN-2022-2: Remove Barrier to BGP Uptake in ASN Policy ARIN-2022-3: Remove Officer Attestation Requirement for 8.5.5 ARIN-2022-4: Clean-up of NRPM Sections 2.1 and 2.2 ARIN-2022-5: Clean-up of NRPM Section 2.11 ARIN-2022-8: Streamlining Section 11 Policy Language ARIN-2022-11: Clean-up of NRPM – Introduction of Section 2.17 These policies are now in effect.

Dear ARIN Community, ARIN is seeking feedback from the community regarding a specific aspect of the recent ARIN Online functionality that was deployed on 7 August 2023. This upgrade to ARIN Online brought several new features – including tighter integration of ARIN’s Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) and Internet Routing Registry (IRR) routing security services. Upon further review and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to pause the additional functionality that creates corresponding IRR Route Objects for every Route Origin Authorization (ROA) created.

ARIN is consulting with the community about harmonizing annual registration services fees for Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs) so that they will be included in the Registration Services Plan (RSP) fee schedule beginning 1 January 2024.
