2025 Charging Scheme

At the May General Meeting, members voted on three options for the Charging Scheme 2025 model. Members voted to adopt Charging Scheme 2025 Model C, which entails a 16.13% price increase for the annual contribution per LIR account (EUR 1,800), a 50% price increase for Independent Internet number resource assignments (EUR 75) and a new AS Numbers fee of EUR 50 per assignment. You can predict your fees for 2025 using our Charging Scheme calculator.

Updated Approach to IPv6 Transfer Requests

During the Address Policy Working Group session at RIPE 88, we presented on the topic of IPv6 stockpiling by several members. The session highlighted widespread support for evolving our application of IPv6 policies, emphasising the importance of enforcing policy requirements for transfers of IPv6 allocations.

In response to this feedback, we have announced that we are now prioritising the enforcement of policy requirements when evaluating IPv6 allocation transfer requests. This updated approach is applied to any new transfer request submitted from 17 June 2024.

Two-Factor Authentication Using Passkeys

Two-factor authentication (2FA) was made mandatory for all RIPE NCC Access accounts in March of this year, and we received many requests to use security keys as an authentication method. You can now use passkeys as a two-factor authentication method for RIPE NCC Access accounts, in addition to authenticator apps.

Update on RIPE Atlas Proposals

In response to community feedback, as well as to the observed behaviour of RIPE Atlas, we made proposals about various aspects of the future behaviour of RIPE Atlas. We have shared a summary of the feedback we have heard so far and the path we plan to take based on this.

Update on DNS Server OS Upgrades

We have completed the upgrades of all our DNS servers to a newer release.


As announced in a recent RIPE Labs article, we will start the work of offboarding users of the service so we can stop this service early next year. We will reach out to the users of the service with instructions on how to migrate away from it and will provide support for those that need it.

RIPE Atlas Anchor OS Upgrades

RIPE Atlas anchors are scheduled for an Operating System (OS) upgrade soon since the current OS will reach its end-of-life on 30 June 2024. We are currently implementing and testing the necessary changes to support a smooth transition to the new OS without service interruption. Consequently, all live anchors will be upgraded by 31 August 2024.

Due to this upgrade process, we have now paused applications for new anchors. New applications will resume from 15 July 2024 with anchors provisioned with the new OS.
