Change of Minumum IPv4 Allocation Size
The final date for comments on the proposal to change the minimum IPv4 allocation size to /21 ended on 22 December 2003. The RIPE NCC implemented this policy change on 1 January 2004.
The policy change consists of two parts:
- The minimum initial IPv4 allocation size is reduced from /20 to /21.
- It is no longer required to demonstrate efficient utilisation of a /22 to request an initial minimum allocation.
Please note that /21 allocations will come from specific blocks as described in the RIPE Document "Smallest RIPE NCC Allocation / Assignment Sizes".
The original proposal for this policy change was posted on the RIPE Address-Policy Working Group mailing list.
