Our Memberships

Member Fee: USD $550.00 per year
Includes: USD $100 flexible credits

There are two types of memberships in Global BASC:

  1. Regular member – This is a paid membership with full member benefits
  2. Registered Company – This is a free listing in our Global BASC database.

The member fee for non-BASC companies is USD $550 per year. All regular members share the same benefits and have access to the same tools and services. The difference between the member types is in how the BASC Index is calculated and how that index affects the results of the risk assessments conducted using our Risk Assessment Sandbox tool.

BASC Member

BASC certified companies are enrolled in Global BASC at no charge.

BASC certification requires an annual audit to validate competence in the BASC Standards and evidence of active participation in the world of supply chain security.

Non-Certified Members

  • Security services
  • Contractors,
  • Custodial and Cafeteria

  • Legal & Consulting
  • Quality control
  • Equipment and supply
