http://www.ripe.net/rs/ipv6/stats/ shows that RIPE NCC and APNIC
are the two largest IPv6 regions, triple and double ARIN's number
of allocations.

"To qualify for an initial allocation of IPv6 address space, an
organization must: a.  be an LIR; b. not be an end site; "

"the RIPE NCC allocates IPv6 address space to its members, the so-called
"Local Internet Registries" (LIR's). "
"To qualify for an initial allocation of IPv6 address space, an
organisation must:  a) be an LIR; b) not be an End Site;"

I don't know whether there is current work underway to provide
PI assignments in those regions, but as far as I can tell they 
do not assign IPv6 space to end users.

By the way, the RIRs maintain a comparative policy list, so you
can fairly quickly check policies for each region.
