RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2017

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 2017. 

RIPE NCC Charging Scheme 2017

In the current environment, the membership development is difficult to forecast due to the growth in the membership in recent years. Every year, members can decide to vote at the General Meeting to return excess paid fees via a redistribution to the membership. Therefore, for 2017, the annual service fee per LIR will remain at EUR 1,400. 

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. AS Numbers are excluded from this separate charge. The sign-up fee for new LIRs will be continued and will remain at EUR 2,000.

Legacy Internet Resource Holder fees

The fee for Legacy Internet Resource Holders that engage in a direct agreement with the RIPE NCC is identical to the Membership fee for this year. There is no sign-up fee for Legacy Internet Resource Holders that conclude a separate direct agreement with the RIPE NCC. There is no sign-up fee for Legacy Internet Resource Holders that become members and do not request any additional Internet number resources from the RIPE NCC. If a Legacy Internet Resource Holder requests additional Internet number resources after becoming a member, the sign-up fee will be charged at this later stage, and in a way identical to that in which the membership sign-up fee is charged.

 

Billing and Invoicing

The Independent Internet number resource information for members will be determined based on data gathered on 30 September 2016. All members will be notified of their annual fee for 2017. Invoices will be sent in January 2017.
