Just checked, it was not present in ripe-173, effectively ruling out the possibility of operating a non-commercial LIR or internet service? Are you able to provide the rationale for including this additional requirement? > With the re-sign of the RIPE NCC agreements we noticed that for > several existing members we are not in the possession of any company > registration papers.

Judging from recent experience, providing a VAT number, and a reference to the historic founding documents of a pretty old university are not considered to be an "equivalent document". So, the other way 'round, what _is_ an "equivalent document" from your point of view? And no, I won't be able to just grab the document from the university's archive, issued on 12th of March 1365 (no typo), and put it onto a copying machine... > Regards, > > > Jochem de Ruig > RIPE NCC Regards, Wilfried.
