ONVIF offers four classes of membership to accommodate individual levels of participation: observer member, user member, contributing member and full member.
Full and contributing members can actively influence the development of the standard by participating in the work of the forum. The user member level is open to organizations who wish to use the network interface specification and have access to specification proposals but do not want to participate in any work of the forum. The observer member level is open for organizations who do not want to participate in any work of the Forum, but who is granted certain limited benefits such as the right to access Network Interface Specification test tools. However, observer member may not present, claim, market or promote any hardware product or software application or other device to be qualified as a Compliant Network Product.
