Our T&Cs are straightforward and cover the membership year, the application process, fees and payment, renewals and benefits.
The SSA UK membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March.
Applications for membership are completed using the respective application form dependent on the membership type. Note: All operator members join the association as provisional members. Full Operator membership is subject to your company and facilities meeting the SSA UK Membership Standard which includes a site-visit from a member of the SSA staff to confirm you meet the criteria.
The annual membership fee for Provisional Operators and Suppliers is £730 + VAT (£876.00 inc VAT). However, for smaller operators we do offer a discounted annual membership. The annual fee is due on joining but if you join part way through the year, your annual subscription will be pro rata in your second year of membership. Fees are subject to revision from 1 April annually.
Membership renewal and payment
Membership renewal invoices are issued 30 days prior to the membership renewal date. Payments are made in advance of the forthcoming membership year and may be made by; cheque, credit card (excludes AMEX), BACs or quarterly payments made by Standing Order (1 April, 1 July, 1 October and 1 January). Invoices not paid by the due date may result in the withdrawal of membership benefits.
Termination of membership
Membership will automatically lapse if payment is not received within one month of the membership due date.
