Our Membership Global Rules outline our current membership criteria for ETP Members. These are under review by the ETP Board in consultation with ETP’s current members, and a new set of criteria will be confirmed in 2024.
Currently, the ETP Board has agreed the following exemptions to our Global Rules for all ETP membership categories:
- ETP membership is open to companies based in any country that is not listed in the UK government’s sanctions list.
- Whilst ETP encourages purchasing certified tea where possible, we do not require all sites within our members’ supply chains to be certified. Instead:
- All ETP membership categories must provide a full list of all the sites where they purchase Camellia sinensis.
- All ETP membership categories are required to publish a CEO-endorsed statement explaining how they are working with their suppliers to uphold the best social and economic practices.
