Legacy Resources

Legacy resources can be transferred within the RIPE NCC service region. The RIPE NCC can help to update the registration information in the RIPE Database to reflect the new holder of the legacy resources, so long as it is clear who is the legitimate holder. Legacy resources that are transferred in this way will retain their "LEGACY" status. More information on legacy resources is available.

Legacy resources can also be transferred to/from the RIPE NCC service region from/to the service region of another RIR. More information on inter-RIR transfers is available.

Contact the RIPE NCC to Find Out More

Before organising a transfer of legacy resources, either the transferring or recipient organisation is encouraged to contact the RIPE NCC to seek clarification on the processes and policies that apply. Both members and non-members can contact the RIPE NCC by emailing .
