Billing, Payment and Fees

Membership Fees

RIPE NCC members pay a membership fee every year. For 2020, this fee is €1,400. This is charged on a pro rata basis for new member. New members also pay a sign-up fee, which is currently €2,000. Members can have more than one LIR account, but they must pay the membership and sign-up fee for each LIR account.  Members also pay €50 per independent assignment or legacy resource.

The membership fee is based on the current RIPE NCC Charging Scheme, which was approved by the membership at the RIPE NCC General Meeting.
