Afera is run by the industry for the industry. We request that members actively participate in events and activities and offer their valuable input into discussions and issues when and where possible. There are no requirements, however, beyond timely payment of annual fees.

Once submitted to the Secretariat, your application is subject to approval by the Steering Committee, a process which can take up to 30 days. Following this, you will receive written confirmation indicating your admission date, your login details and other pertinent membership information.

No. Efficiency and accountability are two of the Association’s core values. We strictly adhere to a policy of confidentiality concerning any and all sensitive information collected from a member company or organisation. Furthermore, Afera guarantees in our published antitrust guidelines that fair competition among members and the industry will not be compromised by exercising Association membership. We aim to share resources and access expertise among our membership and associates to support the building of the individual businesses and common market driving the adhesive tape industry.
Participation in Afera’s committees and WGs is highly encouraged as it facilitates the successful evolution of member businesses and organisations, the adhesive tape industry and the Association. Afera members should contact any of the members of the Steering, Marketing or Technical Committees, which meet at least two times a year, to find out how they can get involved.
Yes. Non-members who are considering joining the Association are invited to attend the Annual Conference one time at a special non-member rate.
