Dear colleagues,

as circulated earlier contributors committee has set the charging 
scheme and fee structure for 1996. 

The notable changes are 

- a reduction of at least 25% to the yearly fees for service 
  provider registries. 

- the introduction of a new category 'Supernational' geared towards ISPs
  operating in multiple countries

- the termination of 'time-permitting' service. In 1996 the NCC will
  process *only* requests from registries in good standing

- the discontinuation of the fee waver for last-resort registries.
  These will have to contribute like any other registry. 

The 'RIPE NCC BILLING PROCEDURE and FEE SCHEDULE' has been adapted to this. 
You will find a copy enclosed in this message.

Please note the following:

- We will invoice registries with existing agreements in November.
  These invoices will be due December 31st.

- Please notify billing@localhost as soon as possible if

	- you want to change your category in 1996,

	- you want to change your billing arrangements

	- you want to use the special arrangement to pay in January.

- In case you would like to terminate the NCC service agreement,
  you will have to do so by October 1st.

- In case you are a 'Last Resort' registry please contact us about
  charges in 1996.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
