What is the difference between a global and a regional Internet number resource policy?

The policies by which Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), the organization charged with performing the IANA functions, issues Internet number resources to the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) are proposed, discussed and accepted by the global numbers community using the Global Policy Development Process (GPDP).

The policies by which the RIRs distributes Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6 and Autonomous System Numbers) to their members are proposed, discussed and accepted by each RIR’s regional community using defined regional policy development processes.
