executive board news executive board minutes

The RIPE NCC Executive Board held its 98th meeting on 19 March 2015 and its 99th meeting on 1 April 2015. The draft minutes of these meetings 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 meetings. Further details are available in the minutes.

At the 98th Executive Board meeting:

  • The Board resolved that LIRs must pay the full annual fee for the year in question before commencement of a merger/transfer/closure procedure of an LIR account.
  • The Board proposes to continue with the existing charging scheme model with a lower service fee for 2016. The EUR 50 PI fee will remain and the fee for Legacy Resource holders with a direct contract will pay the same annual fee as LIRs.
  • The Board reviewed the agenda for the upcoming RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) and the supporting documents for the meeting.
  • The Board approved the continued extension of the voting window for the GM until the Friday morning of the RIPE Meeting at 09:00 until further notice.
  • The Board noted that the intention of RIPE Policy Proposal 2014-04 is not to destimulate the adoption of IPv6.
  • The Board discussed the proposed Joint RIR Stability Fund. This fund is intended to safeguard the RIR system in the unlikely event of an RIR requiring financial assistance. The RIPE NCC would reserve an amount that would contribute towards this Joint RIR Stability Fund.

At the 99th Executive Board meeting:

  • The Board reviewed the membership discussion on charging for ASNs and noted that there was no conclusive outcome. The Board decided to have a resolution at the GM asking members to approve or reject a EUR 50 charge for ASNs.
  • The Board approved the RIPE NCC Annual Report 2014 including the RIPE NCC Financial Report 2014.

You can give feedback on the minutes by emailing the Executive Board directly. RIPE NCC members can also discuss matters among the entire membership by emailing the Members Discuss mailing list.

The Executive Board also encourages all RIPE NCC members to register for the upcoming RIPE NCC General Meeting and exercise their voting rights on the proposed resolutions and in the Executive Board elections.
