How does my company join PAGB?

We welcome membership enquiries by telephone 020 7242 8331, email or via our online enquiry form.

Once we’ve received your membership enquiry, we’ll contact you to find out more about your company and why you’d like to join PAGB. We’ll ask Full members to read our Articles of Association which sets out PAGB’s purpose and the scope of our work.

Gateway members, Retailer Regulatory members and Associate members will be asked to read and accept the Terms and Conditions of membership.

All membership enquiries are subject to checks and review by our membership committee. Once the process has successfully completed we’ll welcome you into membership and you’ll be able to start using our services and enjoying the benefits of membership.
