To apply for membership
All Companies wishing to apply for membership must confirm details of their direct staff and facilities in Europe, plus the full range of products and services they offer, in order to clarify the form of membership which would be most appropriate. Please download the Membership Application questionnaire as a pdf file (120 KB) and return this after completion to the ESA office. This is your formal application for membership and will initiate the application process.
All applications for membership are considered by the Membership Committee and Executive Committee in the first instance, and their recommendations are then decided by all Members. Importantly, the ESA will elect only those Companies which are willing and able to contribute to the activities and work programmes of the Association.
