LIR Resource Sponsoring
If your organisation either already holds or plans to request PI (Provider Independent) or LEGACY IP resources, you need an LIR (Local Internet Registry) sponsor.
These resources are allocated directly to your organisation, and you are free to move them between different LIR sponsors.
Only an LIR such as LIR Services can become a resource sponsor and request the new IP resources from the RIPE NCC on behalf of End User organisations.
Resources without a valid sponsoring agreement need to be returned to RIPE.
