RIPE NCC Charging Scheme Approval

The Charging Scheme (which defines the services fee and sign-up fee of members) is adopted by the General Meeting. This document describes the RIPE NCC Charging Scheme approval in accordance with the RIPE NCC Articles of Association (Articles 7.1, 8.1 and 15.4). The RIPE NCC Articles of Association will always prevail over this document.

Every year, the Executive Board adopts a Charging Scheme in accordance with the process described in the RIPE NCC procedural document "Adoption Process for RIPE NCC Corporate Documents".

In particular, the RIPE NCC management will prepare a draft Charging Scheme, which will be presented to the RIPE NCC Executive Board. The Executive Board may decide to approve the draft Charging Scheme, in which case it will send the document to the RIPE NCC Members at least four weeks before the next General Meeting and will place its adoption on the General Meeting agenda.

The Executive Board may decide to ask for the members’ feedback on the Charging Scheme before adoption. If comments are received, then the Executive Board may ask from the RIPE NCC management to present an updated version of the document to the Executive Board taking the received comments into account before adoption by the General Meeting.

Once a Charging Scheme is adopted by the General Meeting, it will be applicable for the financial year it refers to and will continue to apply until a new Charging Scheme has been adopted by the General Meeting.
