Thank you very much SM for pointing me to that communication from the interim 
Chairman of Afrinic.

To be honest, i have never requested any IP resources so i am limited in my 
knowledge of what type of personal information is requested when someone is 
requesting resources from Afrinic. I would therefore appreciate to be directed 
to the RIPE NCC report mentionned in that communication.

Just a general question as i am following discussions on the GDPR but mostly 
from the naming community perspectives (being a domain name registrant): what 
impact does the Interim Models (with regards to the whois system and personal 
data and icann’s compliance with GDPR) suggested by ICANN has on the numbering 
community? I haven’t see any discussion on those models here since, from my 
understanding, Afrinic is just another data controller?
