RIPE NCC members pay a membership fee every year. For 2017, this fee is EUR 1,400. This is charged on a pro rata basis for new member. New members also pay a sign-up fee, which is currently EUR 2,000. Members can have more than one LIR account, but they must pay the membership and sign-up fee for each LIR account. There is a separate charge of EUR 50 per independent assignment.
The membership fee is based on the current RIPE NCC Charging Scheme, which was approved by the membership at the RIPE NCC General Meeting.
