Processing your payment

You can pay the fee with a credit card on the Classification Portal or by direct deposit. Details are available on the application form, or you can contact if you need more information.

A receipt will be issued once your payment is made.

Processing your application will only start when we receive your payment—we can't issue an invoice for later payment of classification fees.

Serial declarations

You may be able to apply for a serial classification for your publication if you regularly get it classified—this can save you money. Please see Serial Declarations to find out if you can apply.
