Do I need to be a member of the RIPE NCC to receive an IPv4 transfer?

It depends on what kind of address space is being transferred.

The receiving organisation will need to be a member in the case of:

  • A transfer of allocated Provider Aggregatable (PA) space from another LIR
  • A transfer of PA space through a merger or acquisition (though the receiving party may become a member as the transfer is processed)


The receiving organisation will not need to be a member in the case of:

  • A transfer of Provider Independent (PI) space from another resource holder
  • A merger or acquisition where the organisation receiving PI space has a sponsoring LIR
