Nigel confirmed that this would be announced at the RIPE Closing Plenary.

5. Review of presentations for GM

The Board reviewed the Executive Board presentation to be delivered at the GM meeting. It was agreed that Nigel Titley, RIPE NCC Chairman, would deliver the Executive Board update.

6. Discussion of NRO incorporation

A brief discussion took place about the incorporation of the NRO. The Chairman suggested not discussing the incorporation of the NRO in any length at this meeting due to time constraints. It was agreed that this agenda item be moved to the next scheduled Board meeting.

It was also suggested that the Board begin discussion about this topic prior to the next Board meeting on the Executive Board mailing list.

7. AOB

The issue of fees related to LIR closure due to late payment of RIPE NCC invoices was raised. At this time it was agreed not to make any changes to the current fee charged to re-open LIRs closed due to failure of payment.

A brief comment was made in relation to the Data protection task force about providing real time feed of personal data to external organisations requesting the data. Again, due to time constraints, the Board agreed to add this topic as an agenda item for the next meeting.
