How can I propose a global policy?

Global policies govern how Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), the organization charged with performing the IANA functions, issues Internet number resources to the RIRs. Anyone may propose a global policy.

Once a global policy has been proposed, the policy must first go through the regional policy development process (PDP) within each of the five Regional Internet Registry (RIR) regions. An identical version of the policy proposal must be accept and ratified by all five regions.

If you would like to propose a global policy proposal, it can be submitted to any of the five RIRs through their respective PDP. Proposals can also be submitted directly to the Address Supporting Organization Address Council (ASO AC) at aso-policy [at]
