For CSC associates, quality is first and foremost a professional and personal value: the recognition of this principle is a fundamental pre-requisite for joining the Associazione Caffè Speciali Certificati  – CSC Italia, which is formed as a private Consortium.

Upon specific request  roasters, both Italian and foreign, may form part of the Association. They  will participate with one or more of their trademarks, which must be reported on the application form, or at a later date, specifying whether it (they) corresponds to the corporate name of the applicant. The Association reserves the right to decide whether the applicant should be admitted with only some of the trademarks in respect of which application has been submitted.

Application forms must be submitted in writing to the Board of Directors; if the applicant is Italian, certification from the “Register of Companies” must be attached to the application form.

The Board of Directors will, at its discretion, issue a decision within 6 months from submission of the  application form. The Board’s decision will be timely notified to the applicant and is immediately effective. The Member will remain associated for the year of entry and for the following year.

There is a one-off joining fee in the first year plus an annual subscription each year thereafter.
