RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2014


The current Charging Scheme model is based on the principle that members should have equal fees for each LIR they hold. This model has no categories and no differences in fees between LIRs: “One LIR, one fee”. The Executive Board proposes to continue with this model in 2014.

RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2014

For 2014, the annual fee per LIR will be lowered by 3% to EUR 1,750 (EUR 1,800 in 2013). Based on existing RIPE Policy, the separate charge of EUR 50 per Provider Independent number resource assignment will be continued. Independent Internet number resources are: IPv4 and IPv6 PI assignments; Anycasting assignments; and IPv6 IXP assignments. AS Numbers are excluded from this separate charge.

The sign-up fee for new LIRs will be continued and will remain at EUR 2,000.
