In the final quarter of 2013, we launched the Assisted Registry Check (ARC) for our members. This enhancement to the auditing activities of the RIPE NCC was initiated in response to feedback from members who indicated that our previous auditing activities were time-consuming and could be more efficient.
The Assisted Registry Check is the new name for the RIPE NCC’s audit activities that have been improved using feedback from RIPE NCC members and the RIPE community. This improvement aims to make the process more efficient and less time consuming for Local Internet Registries (LIRs).
