Policy Proposals

PA/PI Unification IPv6 Address Space

2013-06: This policy proposal aims to unify the three RIPE documents ripe-589, ripe-451 and ripe-233 and to provide one document for all the IPv6 space. It also removes the difference between PI and PA.

No Restrictions on End User Assignments in Intra-RIR Transfers

2013-05: This policy proposal intends to update the intra-RIR IPv4 transfer policy with the removal of the restriction on End User assignments.

Resource Certification for non-RIPE NCC Members

2013-04: Currently, the RIPE NCC Resource Certification (RPKI) service is only available for RIPE NCC members. This proposal intends to allow the RIPE NCC to issue resource certificates for non-members, such as Provider Independent End Users and Legacy address space holders, which reside in the RIPE NCC Service region.

Removal of requirement for certification of reallocated IPv4 addresses

2013-02: Removal of requirement for certification of reallocated IPv4 addresses. This proposal requests that the text requiring certification of transferred resources is deleted

Post Depletion Adjustment of Procedures to Match Policy Objectives, and Clean-up of Obsolete Policy Text

2013-03: This proposal removes the need-based requirement for IPv4 delegations in the RIPE NCC service area. It also incorporates section 5.6 "Use of last /8 for PA Allocations" into the main policy text, removing all references to the "last /8" itself, and to the reaching of it as a future event.

Openness about Policy Violations

2013-01: This proposal intends to provide more insight into the good stewardship of the RIPE NCC and to encourage assistance in stopping abuse of these shared public resources.

Extension of IPv6 /32 to /29 on a per-allocation vs per-LIR basis

2012-10: 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: 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: This proposal intends to allow the RIPE NCC to identify and make public the sponsoring organisation of each independent number resource.

Revert “Run Out Fairly” after IPv4 depletion

2012-06: This proposal reverts the changes made by 2009-03 "Run Out Fairly" once 2010-02 "Allocations from the last /8" comes into effect.
