Policy for Resource Certification for non-RIPE NCC Members
This policy allows the RIPE NCC to issue resource certificate for non-RIPE NCC members such as Provider Independent (PI) End Users and Legacy Address Space holders.
When requested, the RIPE NCC will issue a certificate for Internet resources held by non-RIPE NCC member organisations, provided that:
- the organisation proves that they are the legitimate holder of the resources
- the Internet resources are registered in the RIPE registry.
In order to be eligible for resource certification, PI End Users must comply with the RIPE policy “Contractual Requirements for Provider Independent Resource Holders in the RIPE NCC Service Region” . The contract with the sponsoring LIR must be verified and approved by the RIPE NCC.
PI End Users can optionally have their sponsoring LIR to act as an intermediary in this process.
