Abstract

This document describes the registry system for the distribution of

globally unique Internet address space and registry operations.

Particularly this document describes the rules and guidelines

governing the distribution of this address space.

This document describes the IP assignment policies currently used by

the Regional Registries to implement the guidelines developed by the

IANA. The guidelines and these policies are subject to revision at

the direction of the IANA. The registry working group (IRE WG) will

be discussing these issues and may provide advice to the IANA about

possible revisions.

This document replaces RFC 1466, with all the guidelines and

procedures updated and modified in the light of experience.

This document does not describe private Internet address space and

multicast address space. It also does not describe regional and

local refinements of the global rules and guidelines.

This document can be considered the base set of operational

guidelines in use by all registries. Additional guidelines may be

imposed by a particular registry as appropriate.
