I need a new allocation soon. To save time, I want to fix the inconsistencies first before requesting a new allocation. Can I request audit results myself?
Yes. We encourage LIRs to do this. You may find that some approved assignments are no longer in use, that End Users use more address space, etc. This gives both the LIR and the RIPE NCC the opportunity to improve the quality of registry data.
The IP Analyser application in the LIR Portal can be used to get a usage overview of your registry's allocations as registered in the RIPE Database. It displays all assignments, all available free space, as well as all invalid assignments that require your attention. Invalid assignments need to be fixed before an LIR is eligible for an additional allocation. We encourage LIRs to use this application regularly to keep their registry's data accurate.
