Benefits will include an active website providing regulatory updates, provision of technical monographs, opportunity to engage in a special interest group, provision of the PHSS Journal and network opportunities.

Operating funds for PHSS and event management / administration will be generated by membership fees, technical meeting attendance fees or sale of technical monographs, up to a defined limit to cover expenditure for a period of two PHSS operating years where activity (and income) is reduced beyond the control of the PHSS. Any surplus funds, that would accumulate as profit made from income, would be re-invested in the interest of the membership and the PHSS to comply with the ‘Not for profit’ ethos of the PHSS.
