Dear all,

It is good to see that you are discussing the Standard Service Agreement.
Hereby I would like to give you all an update on the progress the RIPE NCC
has made since the meeting in Moscow.

- RIPE NCC is actively working together with a legal and fiscal Russian expert
on a method for Russian and Ukrainian LIRs to be able to sign the new Standard
Service Agreement. As soon as I have more information regarding this or a draft
document it will be send to this mailing list for your comments. The input that already has been provided will also be analysed by this expert. If you have any additional input
please let me know.

- The preparations for 2005 are already in full swing and the draft Charging Scheme document for 2005 is up. This document will be discussed at the General Meeting in
September and voted upon in this meeting.

- In addition RIPE NCC is actively pursuing methods to simplify the payment process to the RIPE NCC for Russian LIRs. One possibility will be to have a Russian bank account so that you can make local Russian payments instead of international payments. Another method we are looking into is to make the Credit Card payments more direct and easier for the LIRs. Soon after the General Meeting I will be able to give an update on the changes and improvements for this service in 2005. Again, please provide any comments regarding the points above or any additional suggestions to make the payment process easier.

Kind regards,

Jochem de Ruig
Chief Financial Officer
