What is an organization object

An ‘organization object’ contains information about an organization that has been delegated IP address space or AS numbers.

This information includes the organization name, address and other contact details. It is a new object that will be introduced as part of APNIC’s Whois database upgrade. See the object template for more information.

How will an organization object be generated?

You do not need to do anything to create your organization object.

It will be generated automatically on your behalf from information publically available in various records in the Whois database.

When will organization objects be available?

Organization objects are expected to be available by June 2017.

Why are organization objects needed?

There is currently no easy way of mapping delegated IP addresses or AS numbers to the organizations that have received them.

The organization object will make it easier and faster to identify organizations’ IP address or AS number holdings.

What do you need to do if the information in your organization is not correct?

APNIC Members are required to ensure the information in their organization object is correct and current. Updates can be made via MyAPNIC. See how to make updates using MyAPNIC.

NIR members will need to consult their NIR to update their information.
