Membership fees

All members except for honorary members pay an annual membership fee to support the operations and projects of IAPS and the IAPS community. The financial year of IAPS lasts from September 1st until August 31st.

Territorial Committees

The TC membership fee is based on the country’s Gross National Income. It is calculated by the following formula:

An equation: min(d x (75+2 x cube root of G), 400)

where d=1 for developed countries, and d=0.5 for other countries. The latest UN WESP Classification defines the developed countries. The result of the expression is the fee in euros.

G is the country’s Gross National Income (GNI) (Atlas Method) in millions of US dollars, from the most recent World Bank figures.

If a Territorial Committee consists of more than one country, the membership fee is based on the combined GNI of the countries.

Please consult the IAPS Charter and Regulations for details regarding the membership fees.

Local committees

The membership fee for an LC is 1/3 of what the fee would be for an NC in that country.

Individual members

The individual membership fee is 10 euros.


New committees from countries or institutions which have not had a representative committee during the last 3 financial years have a 50% discount on the membership fee for the financial year of their application and a 25% discount for the following financial year.
