The RIPE NCC, after receiving feedback from the RIPE community on the
draft version, has published the procedural RIPE Document ripe-517,
"Closure of LIR and Deregistration of Internet Number Resources". The
document is available at:
http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-517

This document replaces sections in two RIPE Documents that deal with the
closure of LIRs and the deregistration of resources:

- Sections 3.0 and 4.0 of ripe-301, "Mergers, Acquisitions, Takeovers
and Closures of Organisations Operating an LIR". These sections are
entitled "Closing an LIR" and "When an LIR is Closed by the RIPE NCC",
respectively.

The updated version of this RIPE Document is available at:
http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-515

- Sections 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 of ripe-475, "Independent Internet Number
Resources - Contractual Relationship Changes between sponsoring LIR and
End User". These sections are entitled “De-registering of Independent
Internet Number Resources”, “Closure of Sponsoring LIR” and "Violation
of RIPE Policy, Law or Contract", respectively.

The updated version of this RIPE Document is available at:
http://www.ripe.net/ripe/docs/ripe-516

The RIPE NCC would like to thank the RIPE community for its feedback.

An interactive chart that helps to explain the process of closure of
LIRs and deregistration of Internet number resources will be available
shortly.
