- As a not-for-profit membership organisation, it administers Internet number resources to more than 15,000 members in Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia.
- As an RIR, the RIPE NCC is governed by policies developed by the RIPE community via open, transparent and bottom-up processes.
- As secretariat for the RIPE community, the RIPE NCC provides neutral platforms for community interaction to develop Internet number policies and to share experience and ideas.
The RIPE NCC also participates in Internet governance discussions, ensuring that the perspective and experience of the RIPE community is included in those discussions.
And the RIPE NCC maintains several technical elements vital to the Internet infrastructure on behalf of the wider Internet community, including the RIPE Database and K-root, one of 13 root name servers.
