Dear Lim Hsueh Wei,

I can answer your questions as following:

No - at this moment, there are no fees attached to the delegation
of an E.164 code as an ENUM domain. However, the RIPE NCC reserves
the right to charge per delegation in the future, based on an evalu-
tion of the ressources needed.

In general, there is no expiry date attached to the delegation of
an ENUM domain. However, ITU-T TSB reserves the right to object to
the delegation any time in the future, whenever and after ITU-T SG2
revokes its approval.

The population of a certain ENUM domain is a pure national matter
and therefore completely up to the delegate. The only requirement
the RIPE NCC has before technically delegating the domain is the
set of name servers given in the request to serve the zone consis-
tently and authoritatively.

I hope this has given some clarity to your questions.

Kind regards,
