Corporate membership is open only to those who are directly involved in the fibre optics telecommunications industry and are manufacturers, distributors, re-sellers, consultants, installers, system integrators, training providers etc.

Associate membership is open only to users of fibre optic products, systems and/or services in the sense that they buy-in these facilities for their own networks.



Overseas memberships are suitable for Corporate and Associate Members outside the UK who join via the FIA Secretariat either because they wish to deal direct or because there is no relevant FIA Regional Office. Overseas members do not receive discounted access to events and seminars operated in the UK or other areas serviced by FIA Regional Offices. As a result the fees for international membership are lower than for full membership.
