You’re viewing an archived page. It is no longer being updated.

24 June 2010 - From Thursday, 1 July 2010, the RIPE NCC will start to allocate enough IPv4 address space to Local Internet Registries (LIRs) to meet their needs for a period of up to nine months.

The RIPE NCC and the LIRs will also start to assign enough address space to meet their needs for a period of up to nine months.

We ask that you please note this change from the current 12-month period.

This change is in accordance with RIPE Policy Proposal 2009-03, "Run Out Fairly".

The following RIPE Documents have been updated to reflect this policy implementation:
