After receiving feedback on the first and second version of the proposal during RIPE 55 and RIPE 56, in this third version of the proposal, two contractual relationship possibilities are outlined for End Users that are wishing to receive direct assignments. It is proposed that End Users can either have a contract with a sponsoring LIR or with the RIPE NCC directly.
This third version also argues that the proposal covers all non PA address space maintained in the RIPE Database, except address space marked as Early Registration (ERX) and address space marked as NON-SET.
There are four different documents that are affected by this proposal.
There will also be a new RIPE Document that describes the contractual requirements necessary for End Users of provider independent resources and also speaks to the status of pre-existing assignments.
