  1. Read the Fédération Éducation-Recherche partner charter and its appendix, make sure that you can assume the partner's responsibilities;
  2. Make sure that your application is technically compatible with identity federation technology;
  3. Read the Fédération Éducation-Recherche technical framework and make sure it is compatible with your service provider software setup;
  4. Download, print and fill out one copy of the partner charter in english and its appendix (all fields are mandatory);
  5. Download, print and fill out one copy of the partner charter in French (you have to fill out its appendix also, but you are not obliged to fill it in French, you can copy what you did fill in the English version);
  6. A director entitled to bind the partner’s organisation by contract signs those two copies of the charter;
  7. Send both versions of the charter to:

Then the federation contacts designated in the Charter appendix will be notified by email that their organism has been registered in the Fédération Éducation-Recherche as a partner. This email provides them with the instructions to declare one or more service providers.

Once your organization is registered as a partner in the Fédération Éducation-Recherche, you will be able to declare one or more service providers.
