Outstanding Fees Policy

If payment is not received within 30 days of its due date, a penalty fee of $100.00 will be charged for EP members and EP Auditors while a $50.00 fee will be charged for EPt members. The member will no longer be considered in good standing and will be temporarily removed from the membership roster until payment is received. This status will be lifted, and the member’s name will be placed back on the roster once payment is received.

If it has been more than 90 days since ECO Canada has received any communication from a member, and said member still has outstanding fees, their account will be permanently removed, and they will have to either appeal and pay to reinstate their designation, or apply as a new applicant if the lapsed period exceeds 3 years.

Please contact us at EP@eco.ca or 1-800-890-1924 if you have any questions or concerns about this policy.
