Membership options

CREST annual subscriptions are flexible and allow companies to choose the markets in which they wish to deliver their CREST-accredited services.

  • Global subscription allows members to market and deliver CREST-accredited services in every region and country in the world.
  • Regional subscriptions – the Americas, Asia, Australasia and EMEA – offer access to a range of countries within those regions. The definition of our membership regions is available here: Membership Region Definitions
  • Chapter subscriptions – Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK and the USA – limit members to offering CREST-accredited services in these countries/chapters only.

Please note that the Chapter (country) subscription is being discontinued from 1 January 2024 as our members increasingly operate cross-border and gain benefit from the opportunity to promote CREST services regionally and globally. The Chapter subscription will still be available in 2023.
