What is a valid registry contact; who in my organisation should be a contact and how do I become a contact?

Valid registry contacts are the persons listed as "admin-c:" and "tech-c:" in the application form.

The RIPE NCC keeps a form for each registry, called a Registry File. Each registered contact must have a person object registered in the RIPE Database.

Persons that will be submitting requests for address space and AS Numbers must be registered contacts for their Registry.

If you wish to update any information in the Registry File, an email must be sent by one of the current registered contacts to: hostmaster@ripe.net.

Information in the Registry File will only be used internally by the RIPE NCC and not stored publicly in any database.
