Publication of Legal Address of Internet Number Resource Holders


1.0 Introduction
2.0 Policy Text
3.0 Attribution

1.0 Introduction

The RIPE Database is used for providing accurate registration information about Internet number resources. Providing an accurate legal address complements the accuracy of this registration information. Objects in the RIPE Database must reflect the current state of the resources they describe.

2.0 Policy Text

The RIPE NCC will publish the validated legal address of organisations which hold Internet number resources, in addition to the rest of the information already published in the RIPE Database.

This policy should also apply to legacy holders if they have a contractual relationship with the RIPE NCC or a sponsoring LIR.

It is recommended and encouraged that LIRs also publish the legal address of any customers that have administrative responsibility for Internet number resources.

Get Involved

The RIPE NCC Services Working Group discusses the tools and services provided by the RIPE NCC, and conducts an ongoing evaluation of the RIPE NCC Activity Plan. The WG does not replace RIPE NCC Membership Meetings, and the RIPE NCC Budget and fee structures are beyond the scope of this WG. This mailing list was preceded by “impt-dev” which was a forum for the development of tools specifically for LIRs and is publicly archived on the RIPE NCC website. To post a message to the list, send an email to Please note that only subscribers can post messages.

RIPE Forum

The RIPE Forum is an additional way to participate in RIPE community mailing list discussions using a web-based interface rather than an email client.
