How can I join?

The RDI is open and inclusive to all professional businesses, individuals and related bodies involved within the digital sector. The RDI's internal quality control system requires that potential members meet the necessary minimum criteria for membership and existing members are annually reviewed. Dependent on the size and nature of their business, potential members will need to complete an online application and submit their annual subscription fee. Existing members will also be able to simply renew online. The RDI will remind members in advance when their membership is due for renewal and also when important documents such as insurance or disclosure documents are due for resubmission. The new online membership interface also allows members to apply for inclusion on the consumer facing website. Friendly RDI admin staff are just a phone call away to support you if needed.

ID Cards

Each RDI field engineer or installer will be issued with a credit card size membership card. The card will carry the familiar blue digital tick, the installers photograph, their skill set, a unique ID number and expiry date. The card remains the property of the RDI and can be withdrawn for reasons of misconduct at any time. The card system has been in place since 2006 and has proven to be a valuable way for the public and business to identify whether or not a member is registered on the schemes database. The picture that appears on the card also appears on the members profile on the RDI website. It therefore forms an important part of the security process which helps protect consumers from rogue traders. The RDI issues one free card with membership or renewal. Lost or stolen cards must be reported immediately. Installers are not permitted to operate without a valid ID card. It is fraudulent to misuse or copy an RDI ID card and our team will enforce against any claim arising.
