Name Status Proposal Number Working Group Date Archived
Extension of IPv6 /32 to /29 on a per-allocation vs per-LIR basis
2012-10 Address Policy Working Group May 2013

Summary: This proposal aims to clarify the approved text of proposal 2011-04 on the extensions of IPv6 allocations to ensure that any /32 may be extended to /29, without having to restrict to one extension on a per-LIR-total-summary basis.

Modification of The Time Limits For Temporary Internet Assignments
2012-09 Address Policy Working Group April 2013
Summary: Practical experience has indicated that the time limits used in ripe-526 are too short for certain types of events.  This policy proposal recommends changing these time limits to allow more flexibility for End Users of temporary Internet number assignments.  The excess time limits for the various assignment purposes are also aligned to be the same.
Publication of Sponsoring LIR for Independent Number Resources
2012-08 RIPE NCC Services Working Group January 2014

Summary: This proposal intends to allow the RIPE NCC to identify and make public the sponsoring organisation of each independent number resource.

RIPE NCC Services to Legacy Internet Resource Holders
2012-07 RIPE NCC Services Working Group February 2014

Summary: This proposal created a framework for the rigorous maintenance of registration data and the delivery of services to holders of legacy Internet resource in the RIPE NCC service region. The proposal also amended the policies described in the RIPE Document, "IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region" where this was not consistent with the framework established by the proposal.

Revert “Run Out Fairly” after IPv4 depletion
2012-06 Address Policy Working Group February 2013
Summary: This proposal reverts the changes made by 2009-03 "Run Out Fairly".
Transparency in Address Block Transfers
2012-05 Address Policy Working Group February 2013
Summary: This proposal intends to increase the transparency of the transfer market for IPv4 addresses. It modifies the current intra-RIR IPv4 allocation transfer policy in order to require the RIPE NCC to publish a record of all transfers conducted under the policy.
PI Assignments from the last /8
2012-04 Address Policy Working Group May 2013

Summary: This policy proposal seeks to redress the bias against the large number of organisations which require Provider Independent (PI) assignments of IPv4 address space by allowing End Users to receive PI assignments from the last /8.

Reason for withdrawal: Since the introduction of 2013-03, "No Need - Post Depletion Reality Adjustment and Cleanup", it has become clear that the RIPE Community is heading towards full deregulation of the IPv4 assignment model. The proposer has decided that it is unlikely that the RIPE Community would achieve consensus on PI assignments from the last /8 without a requirements-based assignment mechanism.

Consequently the proposer decided to withdraw this proposal.

Intra-RIR transfer policy proposal
2012-03 Address Policy Working Group April 2013

Summary: This proposal aims at changing the evaluation of the receiving LIR's addressing needs to a period of up to 24 months for transferred allocations

Reason for withdrawal: The proposer had initially proposed a 24-month justification to align with policies from other RIRs.
The proposer found the ongoing policy proposal 2013-03 "No Need - Post-Depletion Reality Adjustment and Cleanup" as being more in line with her views.

As a consequence, the proposer has withdrawn the proposal.

Policy for Inter-RIR transfers of IPv4 address space
2012-02 Address Policy Working Group June 2014

Summary: This proposal aims to describe how transfers of IPv4 address space between LIRs within different RIR service regions will occur. It  also adapts local transfer policy to allow compatibility with inter-RIR transfers.

Reason for withdrawal: The proposer of 2012-02 proposed 2014-05, a new inter-RIR transfer policy. 2014-05 focuses on being aligned with internal resource transfers as well as being more cohesive with the policies of other RIRs. As a consequence, the proposer decided to withdraw 2012-02.

Inter-RIR IPv4 Address Transfers
2012-01 Address Policy Working Group May 2012

Summary: This proposal modifies the eligibility for an organisation to receive an initial IPv6 allocation up to a /29. This is in order to enable small LIRs to deploy IPv6 using “IPv6 Rapid Deployment”, also known as “6rd”, as defined in RFC 5969 in a manner that does not encourage issuing a single /64 to end customers when an LIR has a minimum allocation of /32.
