In accordance with Articles 25 and 47 of the ICC Statute, the NHRI members of the ICC accredited with "A" status, pay an annual membership fee. The amount has been set at 5,000 Swiss francs by the ICC Bureau.
According to Article 47 of the ICC Statute, the ICC Bureau is empowered to waive in whole or in part the annual subscription fee for a member if it demonstrates that it is unable to pay the full amount due.
The NHRI seeking fee waiver or reduction must submit a request to the ICC Chair no later than March 31 of the year for which such fee waiver or reduction is requested. The application must be accompanied by supporting documentation:

Detailed reasons as to why the fee cannot be paid in whole or in part.
The ICC Chair shall transmit the applications for fee waiver or reduction to the ICC Finance Committee which shall consider the applications and provide recommendations to the ICC Bureau.
