Types of Membership

All organisations within the furniture industry supply chain are eligible to apply for FISP membership. There are two routes to FISP membership:

Associate Membership

Organisations requiring time and support to improve their sustainability may become Associate members of FISP in the first instance. This entitles them to a package of support (by way of workbooks, waste dashboard, energy dashboard and KPI dashboards).

FISP Certified

When members are ready to apply for certification, FIRA International conducts an extensive audit to establish compliance with the criteria. Success leads to certification and Full FISP membership.

Membership Application Form

Information about becoming a FISP Member:

  • Initial audit for new members only: £1000 + VAT
  • Applicants with a certified ISO 14001 or EMAS Environment Management System (EMS) are audited every other year. Therefore, the initial Full Membership fee is payable followed by an annual membership subscription
  • A VAT invoice will be issued following audit inspection. VAT has been calculated at 20%, but will be charged at the rate current at the time of application. Travel expenses will be charged accordingly.

Full FISP Membership

Full membership is achieved once you have successfully achieved FISP certified status.

Membership helps to differentiate you from the competition, it is a powerful marketing tool and allows you to use FISP in tender processes and to claim points for SKA rating projects.

Focusing on Sustainability

Sustainability is an essential part of successful business. Sales depend on customers seeing that sustainability is at the heart of business whilst tenders often require proof that sustainable considerations are met.

Every client is unique

FISP is designed to ensure that each individual client drives the changes necessary to achieve its individual business aims: the service is tailored to your needs, whatever stage you are at on the road to excellence.
