BIAFD has always been committed to delivering the best possible value for membership subscriptions. We operate on very lean principles that mean our subscription rates, which start at little more than £1 a week, have remained constant for more than ten years. Part of our ability to maintain this value delivery is due to continued growth in our membership, every year for more than two decades.

Join BIAFD Membership

BIAFD offers three categories of membership:

General Membership

General Membership is open to any UK or Irish company, in which fastener distribution comprises a significant proportion of their business activities.

Executive Membership

Executive Membership is open to similar companies but provides additional meeting opportunities as well as an intensive news and analysis service.

Associate Membership

Associate Membership is open to service providers to the UK & Irish fastener distribution sector, including systems suppliers and media.

All levels of membership entitle one delegate to attend each of the two general meetings, including lunch, at no additional cost.


Ensuring our members are better informed is at the core of BIAFD’s mission. Get in touch with us if you have a question about our membership.

Executive membership also covers the cost for one delegate to attend the dinner held after each meeting.

Additional delegates are always very welcome. Delegate rates are notified for each meeting and members invoiced after the event. Special overnight accommodation rates are arranged on behalf of members.

All membership applications are subject to approval by the BIAFD Administrative Board.

Applications from companies unable to demonstrate a minimum of two years satisfactory trading will not be considered.

Applicants will receive a copy of the current BIAFD Rules to which they will be required to adhere.

To start your application, please complete this application form or use our contact form to arrange a call with our Managing Director.

Once the application is approved an invoice for a pro-rated subscription for the current membership year will be issued and membership activated from the date of its payment.
