The draft minutes of this meeting are now available.

The Executive Board publishes the minutes of its meetings so that the workings of the Board and the decisions it makes are transparent for the membership that it represents.

The following is a summary of the main items from the meeting. Further details are available in the minutes:

  • The Board asked the RIPE NCC to engage with the RIPE community and RIPE NCC membership to determine support and direction for any future plans to develop the RPKI Validator.
  • Two amendments were proposed to fortify the Transfer process and procedure:
    • Network acquisitions will now fall under either the Mergers and Acquisition procedure or the RIPE Transfer Policy
    • All agreements relating to transfers must be signed by a company director or other party legally authorised to make such decisions on behalf of the organisation
