Are IPv6 address assignment policies different from the IPv4 ones?

Yes. Technical differences between IPv4 and IPv6 mean that there are different policies for IPv4 and IPv6 address space management and assignment. However, all policies are based on the same principles and the processes used to assign IPv4 and IPv6 are the same.

All RIPE policies are proposed, discussed and approved by the RIPE community using the RIPE Policy Development Process (PDP).
