Key Membership Facts
DPPE membership fee structure is based upon the number of Data Protection Officers (DPOs) and/or Data Protection Leads (DPLs) (or those working in a similar role such as a Bursar or Data Protection Manager), operating within your organisation.
The organisation is the DPPE member rather than individual employee.
The Membership Fee depends on the Organisation Band. The Organisation Band you fall into will vary depending on the number of DPOs/DPLs operating across your organisation. The Organisation Band determines the discount available to you. The higher the Organisation Band, the higher the discount available.

How do I calculate my organisation’s Membership Fee?
Calculating your Membership fee is simple using the Membership Subscription Calculator below.
1. Count your DPOs, DPLs
Count the number of DPOs, DPLs, Data Protection Managers etc. that operate within your organisation. Remember to include any Deputies if you want these individuals to have membership benefits.
This number will tell you your Organisation Band. i.e. A, B, C etc.
If you are a MAT with 9 schools, it is likely you are in Band C.
i.e. x10 DPOs (x1 DPO and x9 DPLs).
NB. You should not select Band A if you have more than one DPO or DPL. The ethos of DPPE is low membership rates to make membership accessible to as many as possible.
2. Identify your Organisation Band
Using the DPPE Membership Subscription table,
Once you have identified your Organisation Band, you can see your discount and the subscription fee payable per authorised user for your organisation for this membership year.
