Please note: all email-based request forms have been archived on the website and are available through the LIR Portal. You can find an announcement about this here.

To request resources from the RIPE NCC, members should now use the request forms in the LIR Portal.

The Resource Request API and accompanying documentation is available for members with workflows that prevent them from using the LIR Portal request forms.


This document contains instructions for LIRs on how to complete the “IPv6 End User Site Assignment Request Form

The instructions are based on the “IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy

Required Information

In the “reason:” field, please explain why the End User needs a large IPv6 assignment.
