Yes, at some point, the fees schedule may be updated from what it is now(*), to take into consideration IPv6 categories like other RIRs have done without a crisis.


3. Resource Members - IPv6 fees and Categories

IPv6 is in its early adoption stage in our region. To encourage and promote its usage in the region, the AFRINIC Board ratified the following measures:

3.1 For existing members (with IPv4 allocation(s) and/or EU/PI assignments):

No additional fees as a result of the issued IPv6 prefix will apply.

Not to consider the new IPv6 prefix allocation and/or PI assignment in calculating the Billing category of the member.

> IANAL, but that’s a potential liability issue that afrinic would do well to steer away from.

As far as the policies and allocation criteria  are clear, anyone requesting ressources are bound by them.
