RIPE Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC), the Regional Internet Registry for Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Central Asia, has launched a programme aimed to assist governments with their IPv6 allocation requests. As explained by the Registry, the aim of the programme is ‘to help governments accurately calculate the amount of IPv6 address space they need (and can justify) before they submit an allocation request’, in order to avoid cases in which their requests are not successful initially. Through the programme, governments are informed about the policy requirements for IPv6 allocations, in order to be help ten prepare requests that they can justify.
