Some EQA schemes are sponsored by other organisations. This could mean that all or part of the scheme fee is not charged and this will be clear when purchasing the scheme. Schemes which are fully sponsored are charged at £0.
If you only register for schemes where the scheme fee is entirely covered by the sponsorship then you will not receive an invoice.
Charges will apply to extra or repeat samples on sponsored scheme. These costs are not covered by the sponsor.
In some cases, the agreement to sponsor a scheme may happen after the registrations have opened. In these cases the EMQN team will ensure that all participants benefit from the sponsorship and adjust any invoices accordingly.
Please note organisations must not use the details of a 3rd party sponsor as their registered bill payer (name, address, email address) even if they are only participating in sponsored schemes. We require each organisation to provide its own billing details.
