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.
- For IPv6 addressing policies, see the RIPE Document "IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy"
- For IPv4 addressing policies, see the RIPE Document "IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region"
All RIPE policies are proposed, discussed and approved by the RIPE community using the RIPE Policy Development Process (PDP).
