APNIC began this operation in 2019 by identifying unused IPv4 addresses as 'a/24 or more of a delegated prefix that its registered holder no longer needs.' To assess if a prefix is no longer required, APNIC has agreed to contact Members who have received IPv4 delegations where at least a/24 or more of their delegated prefixes are not available in the global routing scheme.

The Chief Scientist of APNIC, Geoff Huston has presented an analysis of routing and addressing in the Internet at APIC 49. Geoff has disclosed that the global pool of allocated but unannounced is currently about 50/8s and it is increasing slowly.
