Membership levels and fees

Eurovent’s fees are clear, straightforward and transparent. They vary according to our three different membership levels. The number of votes is never related to organisation sizes, country sizes, or membership fee levels.

 

Member (national associations)

Eurovent’s Members are national associations from Europe, the Middle East and Africa that are representing manufacturers in the area of Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, Food Cold Chain, and Industrial Ventilation Technologies. 

Voting rights

Each country receives two votes within the Eurovent General Assembly (the highest decision-making body), independent from a country’s size and height of membership contributions.

In case there is more than one national association Member in a given country, the applicable national fee and votes are being split among them.

Membership logo

National association Members are entitled to carry the ‘Eurovent Member logo’ throughout all their communications:

Fees

Their annual fee contains a fixed fee of 4.000,00 EUR that applies to each Member, plus a variable fee that takes into account the economic size of a country and is being defined as follows:

  • Each year, the Eurovent General Assembly defines a membership fee budget, which, in 2016, was 168.000,00 EUR.
  • From this fee budget, the total fixed fees of all Members are deducted, leading, in 2016, to a projected variable fee of 120.000,00 EUR.
  • Each Member covers a share of this fee based on the level of GDP of their country in relation to the other European countries.
  • The GDP figures used for the calculation are those published by Eurostat and relate to the GDP from three years ago. That is, the 2016 variable fee was calculated on the basis of the 2013 GDP.
  • The fees for new Members are being calculated proportionally. 

Following this logic, the Spanish Members of Eurovent contribute 15.915,00 EUR in 2016, the United Kingdom 19.987,00 EUR.

Please do not hesitate to contact our Team to receive information on the precise amount for your country.

Affiliated Manufacturer

Manufacturers that belong to a Eurovent Member are automatically part of Eurovent through this national association. They are referred to as ‘Affiliated Manufacturers’. This structure ensures a level-playing field independent from organisation sizes or membership fees.

Voting rights

‘Affiliated Manufacturers’ receive one vote per company (or, if applicable, corporate group of companies) within Product Groups and Issue Groups.

Membership logo

‘Affiliated Manufacturers’ are entitled to carry the ‘Affiliated Manufacturer logo’ throughout all their communications:

Fees

‘Affiliated Manufacturers’ do not pay fees, as these are already being covered through the national association Member.

Corresponding Member

Eurovent’s Corresponding Members are manufacturers from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which do not yet have a national association representing Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, Food Cold Chain and Industrial Ventilation Technologies. 

Voting rights

When there are four or more Corresponding Members for a given country, these manufacturers together can exercise two votes within the Eurovent General Assembly.

Same as ‘Affiliated Manufacturers’ of a national association, Corresponding Members receive one vote per company (or, if applicable, corporate group of companies) within Product Groups and Issue Groups.

Membership logo

Corresponding Members are entitled to carry the ‘Corresponding Member logo’ throughout all their communications:

Fees

Their annual fee is a fixed amount of 1.400,00 EUR.

Associate Member

Eurovent’s Associate Members are organisations that are engaged in activities related to the sectors the association covers. These can be, for example, associations of engineers, laboratories, or universities.

Voting rights

Associate Members do not receive any voting rights within the Eurovent General Assembly or Product Groups. Yet, in case they are participating to an Issue Group, they receive one vote within the respective Issue Group.

Membership logo

Associate Members are entitled to carry the ‘Associate Member logo’ throughout all their communications:

Fees

Their annual fee is a fixed amount of 1.400,00 EUR.

Important remarks concerning membership logos

It is strictly prohibited to use the different membership logos to promote, in any possible manner, a certification programme of Eurovent Certita Certification (e.g. ‘Eurovent Certified Performance), which is an independent subunit of the Eurovent Association.

For more information and rules, visit the dedicated article for member logos (requires Extranet login).

Issue Groups and Special Projects

Participation fees for Issue Groups

Issue Groups are working groups that are fully project-based. That is, they are set-up ad-hoc with a clear start/end date and concrete deliverables. Issue Groups and Special Projects are being managed by a dedicated ‘Project Manager’, who is reporting to the Eurovent Secretariat in Brussels.

As Issue Groups tend to be subject to a high workload and a high number of meetings required, they can be subject to participation fees.

Voting rights within Issue Groups

Within an Issue Group, each participating organisation and company (or, if applicable, group of companies) receives one vote. Decisions can be taken by a simple majority vote.

Participation fees for Special Projects

Any Product Group within Eurovent can launch a so-called ‘Special Project’. These projects deal with a topic (e.g. development of a Life-Cycle Cost standard) that cannot be easily handled within the usual Product Group framework.

As ‘Special Projects’ tend to be subject to a high workload and a high number of meetings required, they can be subject to participation fees. Usually, project costs tend to be split among participating organisations.

Voting rights within Special Projects

Within a ‘Special Project’, each participating company (or, if applicable, group of companies) receives one vote following the principles of an Issue Group. Decisions can be taken by a simple majority vote.
