Membership Application Procedure

Once you’ve decided you’d like to become a member of the CharIN association, all you need to do initially is make a written application to the association’s board.

The board members and the steering committee will then discuss your application and vote on acceptance. If your application is accepted, you may be asked to make a membership payment to the association according to the Rules for Membership Dues.

For a formal membership application, please, download and complete the Membership Application Form and return it to the Charging Interface Initiative e.V. We are looking forward to partnering with you soon to commonly develop and promote the Combined Charging System (CCS).

These are translations for your convenience and not legally binding. The legally binding documents are the German versions “Satzung des Charging Interface Initiative e. V.” (*) and “Beitragsordnung des Charging Interface Initiative e. V.” (**).
