You are required to set up a Temporary Independent Assignment Request and Maintenance Agreement with your customer. This agreement should meet the requirements as listed in “Contractual Requirements for Provider Independent Resource Holders in the RIPE NCC Service Region.

You will need to provide a copy of this agreement with the request form you send to the RIPE NCC. Additionally, you will need to supply company registration papers.

Such assignments will be made for a specific time and will be automatically deregistered at the end of the approved assignment period.

Show or Hide answer New Do I need to submit any documentation from my End User because this assignment will be temporary?

This is required because all RIPE resource policies now refer to the “Contractual Requirements for Provider Independent Resource Holders in the RIPE NCC Service Region”.

This agreement requires that registration data be kept up to date. This allows the RIPE NCC to keep better track of resource usage by End Users. If the End User moves to another LIR, or ceases to exist, the RIPE NCC will be informed of the contractual changes and will be able to take appropriate action regarding the resources.

Show or Hide answer New Should the Temporary Independent Assignment Request and Maintenance Agreement be in English?

No. The Temporary Independent Assignment Request and Maintenance Agreement can be in your local language. However, there is an example End User Assignment Agreement available in English that you can use.

Show or Hide answer New I have received an approval for temporary assignment and it will expire soon, but I want to renew it? What do I need to do?

At the RIPE NCC’s discretion, renewal of the registration of the resources may be possible in exceptional circumstances on receipt of a new request that details continuation of the End User's requirements during the extended period.

Show or Hide answer New The RIPE NCC has rejected my request to renew the temporary assignment. What can I do?

An appeal may be made using the RIPE NCC’s Conflict Arbitration Procedure.
