Policy Proposals

Proposal to Add Regional Boundaries to Policy Documents

2005-06: Proposal to Add Regional Boundaries to Policy Documents. Proposal to mark IPv4 and IPv6 policy documents with a statement indicating that The RIPE NCC assigns Internet number resources located in the RIPE NCC Service Region.

Proposal to Remove Special African Policies From RIPE Policy Documents

2005-05: This RIPE Policy Proposal was to modify policy document text to reflect full recognition of AfriNIC as a functioning RIR.

Removing Routing Requirements from the IPv6 Address Allocation Policy

2009-06: 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.

Run Out Fairly

2009-03: This is a proposal to gradually reduce the allocation and assignment periods in step with the expected life time of the IPv4 unallocated pool in order to address the perception of unfairness once the pool has run out. The proposal is not intended to stretch the lifetime of the unallocated pool. The proposal is independent of other proposals to reserve address space for transition purposes and/or new entrants. It can be implemented independently of these.

Enabling Methods for Reallocation of IPv4 Resources

2007-08: This proposal outlines a framework to migrate previously allocated IPv4 resources from one Local Internet Registry (LIR) to another LIR within the RIPE NCC Service Region.

Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Policy for Allocation of IPv6 Blocks to Regional Internet Registries

2005-09: Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Policy for Allocation of IPv6 Blocks to Regional Internet Registries. The proposal is to have a policy governing the allocation of IPv6 address space from the IANA to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). This document does not stipulate performance requirements in the provision of services by IANA to an RIR in accordance with the policy. Such requirements should be specified by appropriate agreements between the NRO and ICANN.
