Full Members are the National Associations of European countries representing manufacturers of storage equipment. Only one National Association per country can be in membership. A manufacturer of storage equipment operating in several European countries can be a member of several National Associations; one of which must be in the country where the company headquarters are based
Individual membership is available to European manufacturers of storage equipment where no National Association exists in their country. However in such cases should another manufacturer in that country wish to join ERF, then a National Association must be established.
National Associations or individual companies are invited to contact the Secretary General to discuss the membership application procedures.

They will also be requested to confirm as part of the application process, that they will fully fund a visit from an ERF Board Officer or appointed Technical Engineer acting on their behalf, to verify their credentials and inspect factories, including payment for travel, time, accommodation and all associated costs.

Entry or Joining fees are a one off payment upon joining to recognise the work already undertaken by the organisation, that new members will have access to and benefit from.
