Membership Categories & Fees

There are different categories of membership of the LEEA depending on the business activities of the company.

The different categories are listed below, along with their annual subscriptions.

For further information, to find out which category would apply to your company, or for any other membership enquires, please Contact Us.

Joining and Audit process

Every company that wishes to join the LEEA will be required to undergo a safety and standards audit. To be eligible for full membership, you must meet the required standards for full membership. The process for joining is as follows:

  1. Complete the Why Join online form to receive your application pack.
  2. Return your completed application form to us.
  3. If you are eligible to join, we’ll arrange to carry out a Membership Assessment Visit to your organisation for the LEEA Board.
  4. The LEEA Board will decide if you meet our stringent standards and qualify for Membership immediately, or if you need to take any action before your Full Membership is granted.
  5. Once accepted, your Membership will start on the date we receive your Membership fees (audit fees are paid in advance).
  6. Applicants for the user category of Associate Membership must undertake an initial technical meeting.
