This proposal increases to 24 months, the demonstrated need evaluation period for IPv4 transfer recipients.
|Relevant forum||Policy SIG|
|Status at other RIRs||
AfriNIC currently does not have an IPv4 address transfers policy.
ARIN policy has a clear period for justification for IPv4 address transfers, and the period is 24 months.
LACNIC policy defines to evaluate for 12 months needs for the recipient of the IPv4 address transfer. However, the transfer will only be activate once LACNIC's address pool runs out. (expect for the reserved space)
RIPE the period of needs approved for IPv4 address transfers will be based on the definition of the current allocation policy, which is 3 months. Currently, there is no policy which defines the period of needs based justification, specifically for IPv4 transfers, separate from allocation criteria.
