Please note: Membership fees and accreditation fees cover the operational costs of ESSA. If membership is not purchased, the full proportion of the operational costs are attributed to the 'accreditation only' fee and therefore a higher non-member accreditation fee applies. Please contact the ESSA office if you would like further details.
