No consent is required from the ASN holder.

As an example: The RIPE NCC IRR is moving to a model where only the
prefix-owner needs to authorize route-object creation. This change was
introduced because it was recognised that it brought significant delays
to the provisioning process, and added no value, and in the case of
RIPE's model it introduced pollution of the database. 

In other IRRs such as ARIN, NTTCOM, RADB this never was a requirement.
Also, with RPKI ROAs, no such consent is required from the ASN holder.

Kind regards,
