To open a Gold Standard Account please send the following documentation to registry@goldstandard.org 

·         A copy of your organisation's Certificate of Incorporation.

  • Your company or organisation's registration number, registered office address, names of all directors (preferably an official extract from the registry) and your organisation's website URL.
  • A bank statement less than 90 days old from your organisation's bank showing the address of the organisation.
  • A letter on your organisation's letterhead stating that the proposed account manager has been duly appointed and is authorised, on behalf of your organisation, to accept The Gold Standard Foundation's Terms of Use and any modification. There must be satisfactory evidence that the individual who has signed the letter is authorised to do so on behalf of your organisation (e.g. director or other senior officer).
  • A statement setting out the nature of your organisation's business, your reason for applying for a Gold Standard registry account and how you intend to use the account.
  • A copy of IDs for the account manager and any users who require access to the account along with their email addresses.
  • Signed copies of the Terms of Use and Terms and Conditions. See : Terms and conditions - Gold Standard for global Goals
  • There is also an annual registry account fee (1000 USD), which will be invoiced upon approval of the application; this is pro-rata in the first year.
