Background

• NIRs originally established under APNIC
  “confederation” structure
  – CNNIC, JPNIC, KRNIC, TWNIC, APJII (ID)
  – New NIRs suspended in 1998 due to need for
    development and alignment of policies

  –   Policies and operations now functioning well
Principles

• NIRs serve community of users within “national”
  boundary
   – Defined by ISO-3166 system
   – Only one NIR may exist per ISO code
• Candidate NIR should be selected by its national
  constituency
   – However APNIC EC is responsible for recognition
• NIRs operate within APNIC policy framework
   – Must implement global and regional policies
   – But may implement local procedures
• ISPs should have choice of registry
   – NIR always recognised as “first choice”
   – APNIC and NIR to cooperate fully to support ISP choice
• NIR is a member of APNIC
Endorsement and Recognition

• NIR candidate should be nominated or
  endorsed by national Government
  – APNIC cannot intervene in national
    affairs
  – Government will be influenced by
    consensus support and other factors
• NIR recognition is APNIC EC
  responsibility
  – As representatives of APNIC Members
  – In accordance with this document
Organisational Model

    neutrality at all times

  conditions
