How can I influence the policies and procedures?

Anyone in the RIPE (Réseaux IP Européens) community can suggest a new policy or a change to an existing policy. You do not have to be a member of the RIPE NCC. The RIPE community is an important source of public input for the RIPE NCC. You can find out more about the policy development process at:

The main purpose of RIPE Meetings and RIPE Working Groups is to discuss technical and policy issues affecting Internet administration and operation in the RIPE NCC service region and beyond. The RIPE NCC reports at RIPE meetings and asks for feedback from participants about its services and projects. The RIPE community can influence the annual activity plan of the RIPE NCC. You can find the current RIPE NCC activity plan at:
