What does my member status mean?


For the first six months after signing the Standard Service Agreement, all members are assigned candidate status. During that time, members have access to all RIPE NCC Services and are welcome to attend the RIPE NCC General Meeting but are not permitted to vote.


After six months, candidate members are converted into full members and may vote during the RIPE NCC General Meeting.


The Standard Service Agreement may be terminated either by the RIPE NCC or by a member. If an agreement has been closed, it will no longer be possible to utilise any RIPE NCC Services.

Please see Closure of LIR and Deregistration of Internet Number Resources for more information.
