Code of Conduct Task Force

The Code of Conduct Task Force was formed after RIPE 80 to finalise the updated RIPE Code of Conduct documents.


The Diversity Task Force has put a lot of work into updating the existing RIPE Code of Conduct. It put together a series of draft documents that were then reviewed by the community, but no consensus was found on the current draft version 3.0.

During the RIPE 80 Community Plenary, Hans Petter Holen suggested a small task force form to finalise the work started by the Diversity TF. He further suggested to split the document into three parts to facilitate easier discussion and review by the community.


The Code of Conduct Task Force will review the draft RIPE Meeting Code of Conduct 3.0, the RIPE NCC impact analysis and the feedback already received on the Diversity Mailing List. The TF will then create the following set of documents:

1. RIPE Code of Conduct
2. Code of Conduct team selection
3. Reporting and operational procedures for the Code of Conduct team


The Task Force will present the first document (The RIPE Code of Conduct) to the RIPE community prior to RIPE 81 so it can be discussed at the meeting.

Once the Code of Conduct has been approved by the community, the task force will work on the other two documents and present draft versions to the community prior to RIPE 82.
