Membership Categories

The CharIN association is comprised of two types of members: Core Members and Regular Members. Please refer to the CharIN Articles of Association for more details of what’s involved for each category.

Core Members are particularly closely involved in global activities relating to the Combined Charging System (CCS) and have a particular set of rights and duties within the association’s framework. All the founding members are automatically Core Members, but any member can become a Core Member if they fulfil certain criteria.

Regular Members
, as the name implies, are those who are not Core Members. They may be people or companies in relevant organisations, such as automotive component suppliers, power utilities, public authorities, IT and communications, non-profit organisations etc. They support the rollout of the CCS and participate in one or more working groups together with the Core Members.


It’s important to note that the CharIN association is not a closed shop. Documentation concerning the architecture, standards and technology behind the CCS is available on demand – there’s no need to become a member if you simply wish to review the relevant technical information.
