Other Associations

Español | français | Deutsch

These include any associations which do not fit either the International Associations or National Associations category. This category exists mainly to allow sub-national (i.e. provincial/state) associations to attain membership.


The fees for this category are banded into differentiated levels, using the same banding divisions as currently exist for International Association and Institutional members. This is a system of 3 differentiated banded fees. Using the UNESCO Scale of Assessment and the United Nations List of Least Developed Countries, Other Association Members are divided into three bands, according to the assessment for the country in which they are based. Country codes are obtained from the ISO 3166 alpha-2-code list.

  • Band 1 – EUR 615 (assessment is 0.251 or higher) 
  • Band 2 – EUR 462 (assessment is between 0.001 and 0.250)
  • Band 3 – EUR 282 (associations whose members come from a country on the UN List of Least Developed Countries)
