InChI Membership


InChI Trust Membership Program

InChI Trust has created a Membership Program that helps support, shape and direct the Trust’s ongoing development and maintenance of the InChI algorithm.  Members of the InChI Trust have the following benefits:

  • Attendance at Trust strategy meetings to discuss the direction and management of the InChI Trust, including the appointment of the Board of Directors.
  • Regular bulletins on the progress of the InChI and InChIKey. Advice on implementation of the InChI code.
  • For vendors, inclusion in the register of InChI-accredited implementers at no additional charge (provided the organization meets compliance requirements).
  • Complimentary copy of InChI Certification Suite.

Members must pay a membership fee. All fees are used solely to support the activities of the Trust’s Membership Program.  These fees are used by the Trust for administrative costs and support and maintenance of the InChI software including code management, release management, periodic InChI symposia and communications including the website and download sites.  With a dozen working groups extending InChI to new areas of chemistry, there are also now cases where we will need to support some paid software development for integrations across areas (like stereochemistry or tautomers).  These may also require some extensions due to other new areas under development.

How to Become an InChI Trust Member
