- The application checked for completeness and uploaded to the Wiki
(the association the LC is linked to must be listed in the Application as official, "active" LC)
- The responsible person in the Local Chapter Support Team is informed, he/she checks application and confirms within 14 days. If confirmation or rejection, or a status report is not received in 14 days, the application is considered approved by International Reception.
- If an ECG association exists in the LC's country, the LC must be assigned to that association.
Currently (January 2021) not all members of ECG Associations are listed in our membership database (SmartWe). For LCs in countries where the members are in SmartWe (such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy), it is checked in the ECG whether the persons listed in the applications are members. This is not done in other countries because the information is not available. In these cases the application can be approved anyway.
Only LCs whose members are in the membership database receive their own website from our Web Team.
