*Dear PDWG, *


The  summary of the elements that led to the PDWG Chairs decision for 
the policy  proposal AFRINIC Number Resources Transfer Policy - Policy 
Proposal AFPUB-2020-GEN-006-DRAFT02 that was discussed during the 
AFRINIC-34 Public Policy Meeting is as follows:-

Lack of reciprocity with ARIN was raised and addressed by the authors 
and members of the PDWG, who mentioned that while the proposal is 
conservative and aims at protecting the resource pool of AFRINIC, 
AFRINIC can start with the implementation of resource transfers with 
those RIRs that have confirmed or do not require reciprocity. The 
authors also clarified that incoming transfers of legacy resources will 
be covered by the AFRINIC RSA as the recipient will have to become a member.

After deliberation, the PDWG Co-chairs announced that having considered 
the current version of the policy proposal, the deliberations during 
the  current PPM and the editorial changes that the authors have 
committed to, they have determined that rough consensus has been 
reached. The updated version of the policy proposal, with ID 
AFPUB-2020-GEN-006-DRAFT03, was submitted on 22 Nov 2021 and is 
available at 
<>. This version of 
the proposal   will now move to Last Call and the community can further 
engage in that period.

The Last Call starts on 8 December 2021 and will end at 23h59 UTC on 5 
January 2022.


Vincent Ngundi & Darwin Da Costa
