Changes to the Policy Development Process
During the second half of the year, the Public Policy Forum that met within the framework of LACNIC 30 debuted the changes to the Policy Development Process (PDP) which had been previously approved by the community at the meeting held in Panama.
The PDP introduced substantial changes in the mechanisms and deadlines for the submission and approval of policy proposals, as well as the possibility of appealing the new rules.
Following this mechanism, two proposals reached consensus. First, LAC-2018-11, Remove the reference to an applicant’s multihomed status from the policy on IPv4 assignments to end users. Second, LAC-2018-8, Update to the Policy on IPv4 assignments to end users.
