The purpose of the insert: <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="content-type" /> This obsolete RIPE NCC Charging Scheme Document is to define the annual service fee charged to members, to set the sign-up fee only available for new members and to define the administration and maintenance fee for Direct Assignment Users. As Internet number resources do not have a value download in themselves, the RIPE NCC charges an annual service fee based on the services that a member or Direct Assignment User receives from the RIPE NCC. These services are related to the distribution of Internet number resources to the member or Direct Assignment User. The annual service fee charged to each member or Direct Assignment User is related to the workload involved in providing the services requested by that member or Direct Assignment User. .pdf format.

delete: <p> End Users can request independent Internet number resources from a sponsoring member. In such a case, the sponsoring member must pay the RIPE NCC fee for the independent Internet number resources. delete: </p> delete: <h2> Definitions delete: </h2> delete: <p> Members: Contributors that pay an annual service fee that allows them to request Internet number resources, for their own infrastructure and customer networks, and receive further services from the RIPE NCC. delete: </p> delete: <p> Direct Assignment Users: End Users who sign a contract directly with the RIPE NCC and pay an annual maintenance fee that allows them to request independent Internet number resources for their own infrastructure only, and who do not receive any further services from the RIPE NCC. delete: </p> delete: <p> Independent Internet Number Resources: Independent Internet number resources such as IPv4 and IPv6 PI assignments, AS numbers, Anycasting and IPv6 IXP assignments. delete: </p> delete: <p> Aggregatable Internet Number Resources: Aggregatable Internet number resources such as IPv4 and IPv6 PA allocations. delete: </p> delete: <h2> RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2011 delete: </h2> delete: <p> Following the major change in 2010 caused by the implementation of Policy Proposal 2007-01, "Direct Internet Resource Assignments to End Users from the RIPE NCC", the Charging Scheme 2011 is almost exactly the same to allow for predictability and continuity for members. The effectiveness of the 2010 Charging Scheme means there is no need to introduce significant changes for 2011. delete: </p> delete: <p> For 2011, the Charging Scheme structure and the Billing Score Algorithm for defining billing categories have two changes in comparison with the Charging Scheme 2010. All first allocations of IPv6 address space to a member will score 0 in the Charging Scheme 2011 and so will not incur a charge for that member. All subsequent IPv6 allocations will be scored in the same way as in 2010 and as set out in Appendix 1: Billing Score Algorithm. This facilitates IPv6 deployment by guaranteeing that members do not incur an additional fee as a result of their initial IPv6 allocation. The second change is that independent IPv4 and independent IPv6 assignments that are made on the same day to the same customer will have only a single charge of EUR 50. delete: </p> delete: <p> It is likely that remodelling of the Charging Scheme will take place for 2012 to reflect the depletion of the IPv4 address pool and the possible introduction of RIPE Policies on registration and certification. delete: </p> delete: <h2> RIPE NCC Annual Service Fees 2011 delete: </h2> delete: <p> The service fees for 2011 are annual charges for the RIPE NCC membership. The service fee for 2011 will consist of an annual fee for the billing category plus a set fee of EUR 50 for each independent Internet number resource assignment registered to the member on 30 September 2010. For the 2011 service fees, and for a comparison with the service fees since 2006, see the following table: delete: </p> delete: <table> delete: <col width="117"> delete: </col> delete: <col
