You'd have to install RPSL-compliant code.

RIPE used to distribute their code freely for use in commercial
environments. But that was years back. I don't know if they still do now
because I lost interest in RPSL as a viable method to automate routing
filter generation and management.

But, it is still widely used by several large (and small) networks
around the world.
