Any organization—higher education institution, industrial corporation, R&D organization, training center—with activities in the field of education, training, and recruitment in nuclear science and technology can apply for an Associate Membership as long as its application has been accepted by the Partners Council and it has signed the Associate Members Charter.
As of June 2015, the following companies and institutions sit on the Assembly:
