Do I need to become an LIR?

Organisations that will need their own routable block and a large amount of Internet number resources should become an LIR. Any organisation with a legally established office in the RIPE NCC service region can become an LIR.

If you need a smaller number of Internet number resources, you should first contact one of our members in your country.


What types of organisations become an LIR?

Most of our members are ISPs that assign and allocate Internet number resources to their customers, telecommunication companies, enterprise organisations and academic institutions.

Our members benefit from the independence of having their own allocations or assignments of Internet number resources.
