How to Join

Membership Charter

Application for Membership

There are several membership opportunities within the CSRC that fall under two main categories: full members and associate members. The Membership Committee determines whether the member (individual, company, or organization) meets the criteria for full membership.

Benefits

CSRC's flexibility allows you to explore topics of interest through think tank opportunities and projects, in addition to publishing your findings on cardiac safety through our White Paper Policy. As a member, you have access to information regarding drug and device development and the ECG database as well as collaboration with regulatory agencies and cardiac experts.

Individuals interested in gaining more insight on cardiac safety are encouraged to join CSRC free of charge. For-profit organizations are invited to sponsor the consortium and obtain full membership status with a monetary contribution as follows:
