       Announcement of IPv6 sub-TLA application agent service


As of August 1999, the Asia Pacific Network Information Center (APNIC)
has begun allocating Ipv6 addresses (sub-TLAs) for the Asian-Pacific
region.

However according to Regional Internet Registry (RIR) policy, the only
applications accepted are those submitted directly to the RIR, and for
this reason applicants in the Asian-Pacific region have been strongly
recommended to become APNIC members in order to submit applications.

To eliminate this difficulty, JPNIC has been holding discussions with
APNIC in order to reach an agreement whereby JPNIC members would be
able to be allocated sub-TLA addresses without having to first become
members of APNIC.

As a result of these talks, an agreement has been reached whereby
APNIC has agreed to accept applications from JPNIC members submitted
through JPNIC even if those submitting such applications are not
members of APNIC.

In accordance with this agreement, JPNIC is currently making
preparations to begin accepting applications according to the
following schedule.

Early January:  Publication of application documents
January 20:     Beginning of acceptance of applications

Information on IPv6 and on applications procedures is available at the
following URL. Note that new information on IPv6 will be added as it
becomes available.
