Join IUPAC and become an Affiliate Member

The IUPAC Affiliate Membership Program (AMP) allows any individual with an interest in IUPAC and IUPAC activities to sustain a relationship with the Union.

The AMP was launched in 1986 in order to maximize the participation of chemists throughout the world in the affairs of IUPAC and also to disseminate information about its activities to a much wider audience. Details about the program, its origin, and benefits are outlined here.

AMP Membership is USD 50.00 per year (includes digital access to CI), or
AMP Membership plus Print CI is USD 75.00 per year (includes both digital and print copies of CI)

For 2019 ACS Affiliate Membership Renewals

IUPAC and ACS have worked for many years on the Affiliate members in the United States. In 2019, IUPAC will be the direct USA coordinator for all former ACS individual Affiliate members. ACS will no longer coordinate the program, but will transition it’s members to IUPAC based on renewal schedule.

ACS Members: In order to renew your IUPAC Affiliate Membership through IUPAC, please fill out the ACS-IUPAC application form HERE. If you have any questions, please contact our AMP Manager, Ms. Linda Tapp at:

PLEASE NOTE: The 2018 Affiliate Member Program was updated beginning in 2018. The pricing and Chemistry International magazine options for all Affiliate members is described above

IUPAC sincerely appreciates and applauds the effort and collaboration for the many years of providing AMP coordination to the US individual chemists.  Both organizations are working closely together to provide ACS Affiliates a seamless transition to IUPAC. Welcome everyone!


OPTION 2 - Join via IUPAC directly

Chemists may also apply to IUPAC directly by filling out the online form HERE

IUPAC will keep coordinators informed of any direct applications in their countries.


OPTION 3 - Sponsored Affiliates for early career chemists from economically disadvantaged countries

Where applicable, AMP coordinators are entitled to provide a maximum of 25 complimentary, “Sponsored” Affiliate memberships. These memberships are reserved solely for early career chemists from developing and economically disadvantaged countries. Membership as a Sponsored Affiliate is limited to a total of 6 years.

Individuals may apply as Sponsored Affiliates directly to IUPAC if their country does not participate in the AMP nor have a coordinator by completing the 2019 Sponsored Affiliate Membership online form HERE



If you are already an Affiliate, your National Adhering Organization or National Chemical Society will inform you how to renew your membership.

The Affiliate Membership Program operates on a calendar year, and those who join the Affiliate Program will retain their status until December of that year.

Information about Affiliate Membership may also be obtained from Mrs. Linda Tapp at the IUPAC Secretariat by email:
