How does one go about merging, taking over or closing an LIR?
These cases have to be treated on a case by case basis, since there are different matters that need to be taken into account, such as billing issues, address space usage, routing, new service agreement, etc.
These are examples of different scenarios:
- Registry closes completely,
- Registry takes over another registry and one closes,
- Registry takes over another registry and both remain open
- Non-registry takes over a registry.
In this case, please contact lir-help _at_ ripe _dot_ net in order to discuss your specific case.
Note: Although your company name may change, you are not required to change your Reg-ID, as this is only a unique identifier within the RIPE NCC.
