This clarification was posted by ARIN staff to the ARIN PPML. I thought it might
be useful information here.

> On 30 September 2016 ARIN received a query from AFRINIC requesting an
> assessment on the compatibility of AFRINIC proposed
> 1803-inbound-transfer-policy with ARIN policy. On 6 October 2016 ARIN
> responded with the following assessment:
> Based on ARIN’s Number Resource Policy Manual, Version 2016.2 – 13 July
> 2016, and referencing the following text from paragraph 8.4. Inter-RIR
> Transfers to Specified Recipients, we have determined that the proposed
> AFRINIC Inbound Transfer Policy is not reciprocal.
> “Inter-regional transfers may take place only via RIRs who agree to the
> transfer and share reciprocal, compatible, needs-based policies.”
> In this case reciprocal meaning that the policy provides both RIRs the
> same ability to transfer: both in and out. This policy proposal as
> written could not be implemented by ARIN. Note that ARIN’s Inter-RIR
> transfer policy is based on other RIR's transfer policy and does not
> consider any LIR or NIR policies.
