A fee of € 900 plus VAT (€ 1071 including VAT) is raised for the admittance to the network for a duration of two years. In the event the applicant is rejected, DCOS will refund the full amount with no deduction.
Once the applicant has met all requirements and has been granted admission to the network, he or she will receive the „Trusted Advisor“ seal including the DC membership (status White) for two years.
