Ordinary 'Platinum' membership

Associate 'Gold' membership

This tier of membership is perfect for those who’d like to maintain a link to us, but don’t want to incur a membership fee. Available to anyone who is classed as heavy engineering and who buys materials subject to our Heavy Engineering Research Levy, this is a perfect option to stay connected. However, it’s important to note that this level of membership means you’re unable to inform our operational direction and activities.Read More »
