What fees should be included?

All applicants should pay upcoming 2017 fees. If successful, your 2017 subscription and registration fees (where applicable) will be debited, activating your new membership grade.

Whether you are a new applicant or transferring from an existing CIBSE membership, please see the closing date fees form to work out the total fee you need to submit. 

Ensure the full amount is clearly authorised on the form alongside payment details, including the 16 digit card number, expiry date and security code (last 3 digits on reverse of card). If paying by an alternative method please call the membership team on 020 8772 3655 to discuss your options further.

Why the full amount?

We ask for the full amount to be authorised so that we can release held fees for successful applications, get your welcome pack out to you and inform the Engineering Council of your success (if applicable) as quickly as possible.

Please note: held fees will not be debited from your account until you have been informed of your outcome and will be cancelled should your application be unsuccessful.
