Allow IPv4 PI transfer

2014-02: According to “IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region”, it is not possible to transfer Provider Independent (PI) IP space. There is, however, a lot of IPv4 PI space that was assigned over the past years and there is currently a market for this space as well. Although it isn’t possible to actually hand-over the IP space in the RIPE Registry, some people are actually “selling ownership via side-letters” or other means. This poses a risk for the buyer (new users) and as the registry isn’t correctly maintained, the world is looking at incorrect/stale/false data in the registry.

Removing IPv6 Requirement for Receiving Space from the Final /8

2014-04: In order to receive an allocation from the final /8, LIRs are currently required to have received an IPv6 allocation. LIRs that have an existing IPv6 PI assignment but no PA allocation do not meet this criterion. In order to qualify, they need to request an IPv6 allocation and subsequently return their existing PI assignment (per ripe-589 section 7.1).
