Request Forms: updated and available on LIR Portal
The RIPE NCC is pleased to announce the release of version 1.1 of the IPv4, IPv6 and AS Number request forms.
This update has been necessary in order to accommodate the organisation object and "mnt-domains:" attribute.
Following feedback from our members we have made other adjustments to the request forms. The main changes include the following:
- The submission of network diagrams for IPv6 requests is now optional
- The IPv4 First Allocation request form has been adapted to conform with the new minimum allocation policy.
- The IPv4 Additional Allocation request form no longer has overall usage or allocation usage templates.
- It is possible to use integers to describe the number of IP addresses used in subnets in IPv4 PA and PI assignment request forms
During the transition period ending 19 July, 2004, both versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the request forms will be accepted and given the highest priority. After this date, version 1.0 request forms will be processed with a lower priority via the <lir-help _at_ ripe _dot_ net> mailbox.
Requests can be completed and submitted directly via the LIR Portal, which also provides real-time syntax checking and help. The LIR Portal can be found at:
Text versions of the updated forms and their supporting notes (with examples of completed requests) are available for download from the RIPE Document Store found at:
