There are three membership options:

EBA Members

EBA Membership is available for banks that have their registered office, or a branch office, in a member state of the European Union as well as banks that have their registered office in any EEA member state or in any EU accession country (see Article 6 of the EBA articles).

EBA User Members

This is a special category reserved for banks participating in EBA CLEARING’s STEP1, STEP2 SCT or STEP2 SDD Services that do not wish to have a full EBA Membership status with all related rights and obligations. User Members have no voting rights at the General Meetings of the Association.

EBA Associate Members

Any legal entity or natural person may request permission from the Board of the Association to join as an Associate Member. Associate Members may take part in working group activities and attend General Meetings but are not entitled to vote. This includes banks having neither their registered office in an EEA member state or in an EU accession country nor a branch office in the EU (see Articles 11 and 22 of the EBA articles).
