A RIPE analyst may request additional information from the Buyer or Seller, such as proof that the signer of the RIPE Transfer Agreement is authorized to sign on behalf of their company. RIPE may ask the Seller to pay their annual RIPE dues in full prior to proceeding with the transfer. RIPE may also make technical requests, asking the Seller to remove existing RIPE database objects on the transferred range or asking the Buyer to assume responsibility for them.
