Confirm your BIR references

To ensure the quality of BIR members, we require two references from existing members. Please provide us with two contacts from different BIR member companies / federations that can confirm your reference. They will automatically receive an email upon submission of your membership application (when confirming this membership submission).

If your company is part of a group and that one company of this group is already a BIR member company, please select this company as one reference and ask for the confirmation of the companies relationships, thank you.

Proof of activity*

To ensure the quality of BIR members, we require that all of our members have been active for at least 3 years before applying to BIR. Please attach a copy of your company / federation certificate of incorporation or any copy of official document showing the date of incorporation. When in doubt of what counts as valid proof, feel free to contact the BIR Secretariat for help!
