Does the NRO have any influence in the regional policy development process?
No. RIRs operate in an open, self-regulatory manner, facilitating direct participation by any interested party to ensure that the policies for number resource management are defined by all who need and use them. Each RIR holds independent, open public policy meetings to discuss and develop policy proposals. Public mailing lists allow the entire Internet community to participate in the process. While official, up-to-date RIR policy is maintained on individual RIR websites, the NRO publishes a document that provides a comparative overview of policies across the RIR system.
