Individual Membership

An individual EHEDG membership is for students and retired persons only; if you are not a student or a retired person, please use the company or institute membership form.

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 Head Office.  
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.
