Why has my Assignment Window (AW) been decreased?
A less experienced Local Internet Registry (LIR) contact may make errors evaluating address space requests and/or when following RIPE NCC procedures. If errors happen repeatedly, the Assignment Window (AW) may be decreased to prevent the LIR from making invalid assignments.
An LIR's AW may also be decreased during or after an audit by the RIPE NCC if invalid assignments are seen to be present.
The AW may be increased again based on the criteria stated in question 3.
AWs are regularly reviewed by the RIPE NCC staff. LIRs may approach the RIPE NCC for an evaluation of their AW at any time by e-mailing lir-help _at_ ripe _dot_ net
