I thought the RIRs were not involved in BGP routing. Why are you doing this?

The RIPE NCC is not directly involved in BGP routing. The RPKI service allows the LIR to make statements about their routing, much like creating a route object in the Internet Routing Registry (IRR) that the RIPE NCC operates. Any operator is free to base any routing decision on the information that is provided.
