The full membership fee consists of two components:

  • the REACH cost
  • the membership fee

When joining i2a, if you have EU-REACH Registration obligations, you will be obliged to make a one-off REACH-share cost payment as well as the yearly membership fee. If you don’t have EU-REACH Registration obligations, you need only pay the yearly membership fee.

The REACH cost is calculated on the basis of the tonnage band your company is registering for under EU-REACH.

Membership fees are calculated on the basis of i2a’s operational budget and the annual tonnage of Antimony compounds your company produces or imports globally (with tonnage band-specific weights).

i2a is a not for profit association and works on the basis of the budget made available by its Members’ annual contributions.

The Associate Membership fee is a fixed access fee non-dependent on tonnage.
