Events Terms & Conditions

ASI Event Terms & Conditions

By registering and paying for events and courses on the Australian Steel Institute (ASI) website (the Website), you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions.

Additional or different Terms and Conditions may apply to particular events including the Steel Convention. Please make sure you agree with these terms and conditions, which you will be directed to read prior to making your purchase.

1       Event fees and membership

Event fees are quoted in Australian dollars (AUD) and include GST. Inclusions such as course notes and refreshments are described for each course. Group discounts may apply to events where table bookings can be made.

Individual membership under the ASI Constitution is not transferable to any other person or entity. As a result, the Member rate is only available to the individual Member who appears on the ASI Member Register. There are no circumstances where this benefit can be transferred. Any additional accompanying persons registered will be charged at the non-member rate. Each Member should log in separately to register at the Member rate.

Refunds will not be made to ASI Members who purchase items at full price while not logged in on our Website.

2       CPD

All event attendees at those events eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points may use the confirmation of registration and/or tax invoice/receipt as a record for a CPD Program. Whether an event qualifies for CPD points is subject to the requirements of your professional body and Australian Steel Institute makes no warranty any of its events will qualify for CPD points with any other organisation.

3       Payment

Registration is not confirmed until payment in full has been received. The ASI reserves the right to refuse entry until such time as the payment is settled if payment is not received prior to the event, seminar or other function.

Online payment for an event can be made by credit card (Visa or Mastercard). Please retain your tax invoice/receipt as a record of your purchase.

4       Cancellations

Special Cancellation provisions may apply to particular events including the Steel Convention. See 4.2. Steel Convention.

4.1       Events and courses

In general, attendees are entitled to a full refund of their event fees if they cancel their place more than ten (10) business days prior to the event commencement date. Fees are not refundable for cancellations made within ten (10) working days from the event commencement, or for cancellations and no-shows on the day of the event commencement. Attendee substitution may be made at any time. If a non-member is attending in place of a Member, an additional fee may apply – see 1. Event fees and membership.

4.2       Steel Convention

A substitute delegate can be nominated to attend in your place at any time up to 24 hours prior to the start of the event. If a non-member is attending in place of a Member, an additional fee may apply – see 1. Event fees and membership. Should you be unable to find a replacement and seek a refund, the following conditions apply:

  • More than 45 days prior to the commencement of the event: Full refund less $25 administration fee
  • Between 15 and 45 days prior to the commencement of the event: 50% refund.
  • 14 days or less prior to the commencement of the event: No refund.

4.3       Cancellation by Australian Steel Institute

ASI reserves the right to cancel events for any reason including if they are under-subscribed. In such cases any fees paid will be fully refunded. We may also, in exceptional circumstances, use substitute speakers.

5       Refunds

Where a registrant is entitled to a refund under the provisions of 4. Cancellations above or special Cancellation provisions applying to a particular event, the amount will be returned in full to the original payer and by the same payment method as the original payment.

ASI will make its best endeavours to refund within ten (10) business days.
