Full membership is for companies wishing to:

•    Actively benefit from ecta’s regulatory secretariat’s policy making and lobbying expertise
•    Promote company interests through European-level policy making
•    Meet national objectives by sharing best practice, benchmarking information and by escalating national concerns to EU level
•    Gain access to EU policy makers and officials from key European institutions
•    Develop regulatory knowledge, contacts and effectiveness through information sharing and networking opportunities with industry and Government


Full membership is for telecoms network and service providers, equipment manufacturers, software vendors, resellers and other service providers with headquarters and/or significant business divisions in EMEA. Full members must actively support and sign up to the ecta Articles of Association, Bylaws, Mission Statement (Aims & Objectives and Core Principles), Rules of Procedure and Membership Terms & Conditions.  Incumbent network operators may join ecta as Full members either (i) in their own right if their Group position on key regulatory issues is consistent with ecta policy or (ii) through their pro-competitive subsidiaries or divisions outside the incumbent’s home market.  In the latter case, it is the subsidiary or division that will be recognised as the Member and receive the benefits conferred by ecta Membership.  Companies which join through a subsidiary or division and whose parent company does not actively support ecta’s objectives and core principles, may at the discretion of the Board be restricted in their level of involvement in policy development, plus input on lobbying strategy and receipt of information which affects the geographical market location or business of the subsidiary or division only.
