Escalated Evaluation of Internet Number Resource Requests

The type and size of the resources being requested determines whether we perform an escalated evaluation. Rare or infrequent requests are also evaluated by a wider group of people to gain experience and share knowledge within the RIPE NCC.

All Internet number resource requests that undergo this process are evaluated by at least two Internet Resource Analysts. Large IPv6 allocation requests are also evaluated by a larger team.

The following requests are subject to approval from Registration Services Management and the Policy Development Office:

  • All temporary assignment requests (IPv4, IPv6 and ASNs) longer than two months
  • IPv6 initial allocation requests greater than a /29
  • IPv6 PI assignment requests greater than a /44
  • IPv6 subsequent allocation requests
  • IPv6 End User site assignment greater than a /48
  • IPv4 transfer requests of a /16 and greater
  • IPv6 transfer requests greater than a /29
