Who decided that each RIR would receive one of the reserved /8s?

The "Global Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4 Address Space" was proposed, discussed, modified and accepted by all five of the RIR communities in an open, inclusive and fully documented process. The policy was ratified by the ICANN Board on 6 March 2009.
