Membership Categories

At the heart of our organization are the EOQ National Representative organizations (NR’s),who are leading non-profit organizations from a European country, of whom we accept only one member per country. Only NR’s have voting rights in the EOQ General Assembly.

If EOQ is already represented in a specific country by an NR, a non-profit organization can apply for an EOQ Associated Membership. The associated membership can be a temporary membership before your application for National Representative has been approved by the GA of EOQ, in a European country where there is no NR.

If a profit or non-profit organization is willing to have a link to EOQ and its mission, strategy and targets, it may be accepted as an EOQ Affiliated Member.

Finally, we offer an EOQ Individual Networking Partner Membership to professionals active in the quality domain. Persons who have made an exceptional contribution to the association in the field of quality, may be awarded with the status of Honorary Member.
