Dear Contributors,

Please note that the following documents have been published which
have a large effect on your interaction with the RIPE NCC services 
in 1998. 
Ripe-169 is the minutes of the decisions taken at the 1997 RIPE
NCC Contributors meeting regarding the activities of 1998 and
is therefore worthy of your reading.

Ripe-172,173,174,175,and 176 all are key documents in the new
legal structure of the RIPE NCC. Ripe-176 is the articles of 
association for the RIPE NCC and thus describes in detail how
the NCC will be governed and what the role of the individual
contributor is this governance. 

Ripe-172 is a crucial document 
that all contributors must read. This is the service agreement 
for the RIPE NCC services from 1 January 1998 onwards. The
present service agreements that contributors have with TERENA are
no longer valid after 1 January 1998. All Contributors must have
signed a new service agreement (Ripe-172) and have returned it
to the RIPE NCC before 1 January 1998 in order for present 
services to be continued. Ripe-173 are the general terms and conditions
under which the RIPE NCC services will be given and is an
accompanying document to ripe-172. In order to speed up the 
process of contract signing, the RIPE NCC has in the last two days 
sent 2 copies of Ripe-172(already signed by the RIPE NCC),
1 copy of Ripe-173 and an invoice for
the 1998 services by post to all contributors. In order for 
contributors to guarantee the continuation of their services after
1 January 1998 they are asked to send one signed copy of 
the service agreement (Ripe-172) back to the RIPE NCC before 31
December 1997. The amount stated on the accompanying invoice must
also be paid before 31 December 1997.

Ripe-174, and Ripe-175 are accompanying documents to Ripe-172, and Ripe-173.
Ripe-174 details the arbitration procedure for Contributors as
referred to in Ripe-173. Ripe-175 states the billing procedure and fee
schedule for the 1998 services of the RIPE NCC.

Please give these documents your attention and please ensure that a signed
copy of Ripe-172 is recieved ny the RIPE NCC before 31 December
1997 together with payment of the 1998 invoice.

Regards

Paul Ridley
Business Manager
