Full Membership is open to European Union Member States and to those states, jurisdictions and third parties who were invited to the CARIN launch congress in 2004. Each Member may nominate two representatives, one from a law enforcement agency and one from a judicial agency to be their CARIN contacts. Assets Recovery Offices may represent either the law enforcement or the judicial contact.
Observer status is available to states and jurisdictions that do not qualify for Member status, and non-private bodies concerned with the identification and confiscation of the proceeds of crime.
Associate status is available to bodies that, although not involved with the operational exchange of law enforcement and judicial information, demonstrate a complementary strategic role in the identification and confiscation of the proceeds of crime.
