RIPE: The transfer policy proposal implemented by RIPE places no limits on any organisation transferring address space to a third party from going back to the RIPE NCC for further IPv4 address space.

ARIN: Section 8.2 of the transfer policy notes that transfers of address space between organisations are only considered if the originating organisation has made a complete transfer of assets to the recipient (such as a liquidation of the originating organisation).

LACNIC is currently discussing the proposal, LAC-2009-04 Transfer of IPv4 Blocks within the LACNIC Region.

AfriNIC has no transfer policy.
