For a better vision, we will give you a glimpse with the list of the 15 steps for an IP Transfer. These are general instructions but on the platform everything will be customized to your company and the RIR it is a member of ... The 15 steps below are for a RIPE to RIPE transfer. All transfers will have 15 steps but the details will be specific to the RIRs in the transaction.
Behind each transfer there's a logic. An Artificial Intelligence we might say, that follows carefully each step along the way, from the first click, to the last.
Each logic makes sure all the required documents and forms are propely generated and in compliance with the latest updates on the RIRs, and last but not least, signed by both sides if necessary.
Bellow you will find the full list of the process, according to a generic transaction. Please click on each step to see the details.
