Hi Arsene, The GDPR applies for data protection for all EU citizens.
If, for example an EU citizen is the contact person for a range of IP addresses provided by Afrinic, then Afrinic needs to ensure this data ( contact details of EU person) meet GDPR obligations, namely, that is has taken measures to safeguard access to the data and that the data is kept encrypted. If it can prove those 2 processes, then it cannot be fined. This is my understanding of the GDPR changes.
