RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2016

Introduction

The current Charging Scheme model is based on the principle that members should have equal fees for each LIR they hold. This model has no categories and no differences in fees between LIRs: “One LIR, one fee”. The Executive Board proposes to continue with this model in 2016.

RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2016

For 2016, the annual fee per LIR will be lowered by 13% to EUR 1,400 (reduced from EUR 1,600 in 2015).

The sign-up fee for new LIRs will be continued and will remain at EUR 2,000.

Based on existing RIPE Policy, the separate charge of EUR 50 per Provider Independent number resource assignment will be continued. Independent Internet number resources are: IPv4 and IPv6 PI assignments; anycasting assignments; and IPv6 IXP assignments.

Legacy Internet resource holders that become members do not have to pay a sign-up fee. An annual EUR 50 fee per legacy Internet resource assignment will apply to legacy resources that are registered via a sponsoring LIR. For legacy Internet resource holders that conclude a separate direct agreement with the RIPE NCC, a one-time sign-up fee and a fee identical to the fee per LIR will apply.

Billing and Invoicing

The independent Internet number resource information for members will be determined based on data gathered on 30 September 2015. All members will be notified of their annual fee for 2016 by email in the last quarter of 2015. Invoices will be sent in January 2016.

Legacy Internet Resource Holder Fees

Legacy Internet resource holders have different ways in which they can engage with the RIPE NCC following from the policy ripe-605, “RIPE NCC Services to Legacy Internet Resource Holders”.

For the Charging Scheme, the following ways to engage are described:

  1. Legacy Internet resource holders can become members; see above for the fees that apply
  2. Legacy Internet resource holders can engage a sponsoring LIR. An annual EUR 50 fee per legacy Internet resource assignment will apply.
  3. Legacy Internet resource holders can conclude a separate direct agreement with the RIPE NCC. A one-time sign-up fee and a fee identical to the fee per LIR will apply.

The table below provides an overview of the different fees for the different scenarios for legacy Internet resource holders.
