Because Electronics Watch operates on a not-for-profit and affiliations basis the cost to each affiliate is a fraction of what it would otherwise be.  Affiliates pool their resources through annual affiliation fees and together contribute to the overall costs of maintaining an international monitoring network and conducting investigatory and improvement activities.

All affiliates have a voice in Electronics Watch through their representatives on the Board of Trustees. We also encourage affiliates to participate in advisory boards and working groups.
