An individual EHEDG membership is recommended to newcomers interested in the EHEDG know-how as well as to students, retired persons or small consultancies. An individual membership can be also considered as a starter model for decision makers who are striving for a Company Membership at a later date and their EHEDG affiliation can be converted accordingly anytime.
Depending on their interests and expertise, individual EHEDG members can apply for active membership in an EHEDG Working Group to contribute by their know-how to the task of developing and writing up guidelines in a team of other experts.
Working Group (WG) membership is open to all interested experts with the respective background including meeting participation and access to the internal Working Group website folder/s. If you are interested to contribute to the good work of an experts team, please contact the EHEDG Secretariat.
The Working Group Chair decides when the Working Party is complete, i.e. with the required expertise and balance of countries and interests, to complete the work at hand. True working party members are acknowledged as co-authors of the document.
Individuals can alternatively apply for a corresponding Working Group Membership to receive minutes and updates on the progress of work with the opportunity to comment on a draft document.
All individual members receive:
- general information and updates about EHEDG
- membership discounts on selected publications and events
- a 50 % discount when purchasing the EHEDG guidelines
- the opportunity to join a Regional Section and its activities.
The individual membership fee is EUR 100 p.a. (excl. VAT). This fee is considered as an annual minimum contribution which will be charged after receipt of the application, regardless of its date of receipt. Subsequent membership invoices will be issued in the first quarter of a year for the whole calendar year. Membership will be automatically extended from one year to another if not cancelled before 30 September for the following year.
The minimum duration of an EHEDG membership is one year. The membership will be automatically extended from one calendar year to another, if not cancelled in written before 30th September of the current year for the year to come, thus terminating the membership on 31st December. The full payment for the following year will be due in case of cancellation after 30th September. Future invoices will be issued each during the first quarter of a year.
