Subscription rates

IChemE's subscription year runs from January to December with payment due on 1 January each year. Subscription rates are reviewed annually by the Board of Trustees and are based on membership grade and location. 

Our subscription bands align with the World Bank's 'country classifications by income level'. Those in Country Group 1 pay the standard rate for the relevant membership grade, members in Country Group 2 pay approximately 65% of the standard rate, and those in Country Group 3 pay approximately 40% of the standard rate. 

If you pay for your own membership fees, you may be able to claim back the tax on your membership subscription payment. Please refer to your country’s tax office/government for more information.
