The policy proposals on this page have been archived. You can see at a glance if they were accepted and adopted by the RIPE community or withdrawn at any stage.

Name Status Proposal Number Working Group Date Archived
Registration Requirements for IPv6 End User Assignments
2010-06 IPv6 Working Group February 2011
Summary: This proposal had two purposes: to create a new policy that defined the use of new attributes in the RIPE Database and to change the policy text of ripe-481 to require the use of these new database attributes.
Global Policy for IPv4 Allocation by the IANA Post Exhaustion
2010-05 Address Policy Working Group March 2011

Summary: This is a proposal to create a policy allowing for the allocation of IPv4 address space after the depletion of the IANA IPv4 address pool.

Reason for withdrawal: It was agreed with the proposer that the lack of community feedback and the impossibility of the proposal becoming globally accepted due to recent developments in the global PDP at the time were sufficient reasons to have it withdrawn.

80% Rule Ambiguity Cleanup
2010-04 Address Policy Working Group October 2010
Summary: This proposal is to solve the ambiguity in the current wording of the IPv4 Allocation Policy (ripe-492) regarding the "80% utilisation" rule.
Global Policy State in RIPE PDP
2010-03 Address Policy Working Group July 2010
Summary: This proposal would have modified the RIPE Policy Development Process to create a new state that is specific to global policies. This state was "Accepted pending consensus in other RIR communities." This would have allowed a global policy to be further discussed in the event that modifications are made in other RIR communities after acceptance in RIPE

Reason for Withdrawal: Proposer decided to withdraw the proposal based on the feedback received at RIPE 60.
Allocations from the last /8
2010-02 Address Policy Working Group January 2011
Summary: This proposal described how the RIPE NCC should distribute address space from its last /8 worth of IPv4 address space.
Temporary Internet Number Assignment Policies
2010-01 Address Policy Working Group August 2011
Summary: This proposal expands the RIPE NCC's ability to assign number resources for temporary purposes and allows the RIPE NCC to reserve pools of IP addresses and Autonomous System (AS) Numbers, which can be used by the RIPE NCC to make temporary direct assignments to End Users.
IPv6 Provider Independent (PI) Assignments for LIRs
2009-08 Address Policy Working Group September 2009
Summary:This proposal is to allow LIRs to receive IPv6 PI assignments in addition to an IPv6 allocation.
Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Policy for Allocation of ASN Blocks (ASNs) to Regional Internet Registries
2009-07 Address Policy Working Group September 2009

Summary: According to the current global policy (ripe-416), IANA will cease to make any distinction between 16 bit and 32-bit only ASN blocks by 31 December 2009, when making allocations to RIRs. This proposal is to extend this date by one year, to 31 December 2010.

Removing Routing Requirements from the IPv6 Address Allocation Policy
2009-06 Address Policy Working Group September 2009
Summary:The IPv6 address allocation policy currently contains mandates about how an allocated address range should be announced into the routing table. Following discussion at RIPE 58, it is proposed that this is removed from the address policy as it does not relate to address allocation.
Multiple IPv6 /32 Allocations for LIRs
2009-05 Address Policy Working Group May 2009
Summary: This was a proposal to allow an LIR operating separate networks in unconnected geographical areas to receive multiple /32 IPv6 allocations.

Reason for Withdrawal:
The proposer, together with the Working Group Chairs, decided to withdraw this proposal due to insufficient support for it as it is written.
