RTP-NL registration for non-EU passports

Folks - would anyone know if the Netherlands RTP-NL is open for non-EU passport holders yet? Registration was supposed to open back in 2017, but it was pushed back to Q1 2018.

Last time I checked automated exit is already active for select non-EU passports, such as US and Canada, but the automated entry is still EU+CH only.

They still expect Q1 2018:
We expect that we will be able to facilitate the new programme from the first quarter of 2018.
To enrol in the RTP-NL programme, travellers need to be over 16 years of age and hold an e-Passport from Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, New Zealand, Canada or the United States of America.

Currently self-service control is for passengers with passports from:
EU/EEA, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zeeland, S-Korea, Singapore and the USA.

AFAIK the program is only for EU/EEA/CH passengers. All others would need to register for RTP-NL to be able to enter The Netherlands via these machines, hence my initial question.

Exit is already allowed for US/Canada and maybe others without prior registration.

I posted a message on the KMAR's Facebook page about this two weeks ago.

This was their reply:
Koninklijke Marechaussee We kunnen momenteel geen exacte datum noemen. Wel kunnen wij melden dat we momenteel aan het testen zijn.
They could not give a date, but they can say they are testing the systems right now.

Bumping this thread out of curiosity - RTP-NL seems to have disappeared from the Schiphol website completely. Did it get put on hold?

For reasons not just related to Brexit, I suspect that the Dutch approach is going to be to allow a growing variety of “third country” nationals to use the AMS egates to some degree even without registering into RTP-NL.

I just crossed INTL to Schengen this morning and while nothing is operational yet there is a "new" (I haven't been here in a few months) queue to the left of the EU/CH automatic gates. I couldn't see the new signage directly, but it appeared to be almost identical to the already existing Schengen to INTL signage (where US, CA, JP, and a couple of others can use the automatic gates without registration). I don't remember seeing anything about RTP-NL on the new sign.

Whether or not registration is required, I'm certainly looking forward to this, as it took a solid 20-30 minutes to clear immigration in the "All Passports" lane this morning. (Granted, not as bad as I've seen.)
