Release date 5 January 1998

UMTS Forum membership is open to any legally established corporation and individual firm, partnership, governmental body or international organisation supporting the promotion and further development of mobile and personal communications in the form of UMTS. There are no geographical restrictions on where the candidate member is located.

There are two levels of membership: Full and Associates

Full Members are entitled

Associate Members are entitled

Associated Members are not entitled to nominate their own candidate for a seat of the Steering Group, to vote at the General Assembly, or to chair Working Groups.

Subscriptions

The membership year for Full Members runs for 12 months from each December. The subscription is paid in two instalments, the first due in December, and the second the following April. The current subscriptions are 4000 ECU for December 97 and each subsequent instalment.

For all new Full Members, there is an entrance fee of 6000 ECU payable on initial joining.

Associate Members pay a lower subscription (currently 1000 ECU), payable once their Application for Associate Membership has been accepted by the General Assembly. This subscription is valid for 12 months from date of acceptance and may be renewed on each anniversary. There are no entrance fees for Associate Members.

The permanent secretariat and banking facilities are based in London, UK and subscriptions are invoiced in UK Pounds. All charges, exchange fees, etc. associated with the payment of subscriptions are to be borne by remitting members.

All the fees quoted in the preceeding paragraphs exclude VAT. VAT will be charged to UK members at the current rate of 17.5% in accordance with UK legislation and legal guidance.

Joining the UMTS Forum

The application process is straightforward. All candidates are asked to complete the Application for Membership form attached, and to supply a short statement outlining their interest in the UMTS Forum. Applications will then be reviewed by the Steering Group and forwarded to the next General Assembly for acceptance. Once the application has been accepted by the General Assembly, invoices are sent to the candidate and membership commences immediately payment is received.

Applicants are welcome to participate (but with no right to vote) in the Working Groups as soon as their application has been provisionally accepted by the Steering Group, pending formal acceptance by the General Assembly.
