Following an application made via the WASPA web site some initial checks are done by the WASPA Secretariat:
- Does the applicant meet the membership criteria?
- Does the applicant have a connection to one or more of the Network Operators?
- Has the applicant applied for the correct category of membership?
- Has the applicant provided sufficient information to support the application?
Once the above requirements have been confirmed, the application can be forwarded to the Management Committee by the Secretariat. However if the applicant fails any of the checks, then the WASPA Secretariat will seek clarification from the applicant, or inform the applicant that they do not meet the WASPA membership requirements.
Once the application has been forwarded to the Management Committee, the members of Mancom have 48 hours to object. If there are no objections within 48 hours, the application is automatically approved by the Management Committee. Should objections be forthcoming, more information may be requested from the applicant, or Mancom may be asked to vote on the application.
Note: Please be aware that WASPA may conduct credit checks on applicants for membership.
