Requirements: End User Assignment Agreement

This page specifies the requirements that a contract or agreement between an LIR and an End User must meet. There are two relevant sections:

  1. Policy requirements - these are requirements following directly from the RIPE policy. These requirements are mandatory and must be reflected in the agreement between the LIR and the End User
  2. Contractual requirements - these are requirements in furtherance of the policy requirements. These requirements are mandatory and must be reflected in the agreement between the LIR and the End User

Policy requirements

  • End User must specify and establish need for an independent resource assignment.
  • End User must provide up-to-date registration information to the LIR; some or all data will be published in the RIPE Database.
  • End User may not sub-assign resources to third parties.
  • End User must pay an annual maintenance fee to the LIR for the resources.
  • Resources will be returned by default to the RIPE NCC if the End User cannot be contacted or if the annual fee to the LIR is not paid.
