Best Practices: How to Propose New IPv6 Policies

Members of the LACNIC community can propose modifications to existing resource allocation policies at any time and through a relatively simple process.

Since its creation, LACNIC has promoted a self-regulation model in which rules and mechanisms are established and developed by the community by means of public, open, transparent and participatory processes.

With the community’s consensus, the process for modifying a policy is quite simple.

For this reason, LACNIC is organizing the edition of its webinar titled “Best Practices: How to Propose New IPv6 Policies,” which will be held on 9 August and aims at encouraging the community’s involvement in regional Internet policy.

The community uses self-regulation mechanisms and members who do not agree with an existing rule may propose the modifications they see fit.

The activity will begin at 13:00 (UTC-3) with the topic “What is a policy? Why should I participate?” presented by Gianina Pensky, Policy Officer at LACNIC.

Jordi Palet will then share the success story of a policy he proposed which was later approved during the LACNIC 25 meeting. Jordi’s proposal consisted of modifying direct IPv6 assignments to end users.

The meeting will continue with a brief preview of the proposals that will be discussed during the upcoming LACNIC 26 event in Costa Rica. Three initiatives are already on the agenda, but there is still time to submit new proposals.

Participants will also discuss the region’s major hot topics, including geolocation, which is causing problems for many end users in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Both Policy Forum chairs —Juan Peirano and Alex Ojeda— will participate in the webinar.

The event will have a duration of approximately one hour. Those who wish to participate and follow the webinar live can register at
