The principal members inform their associate members of their rights and obligations. They may also take part in the work of experts and in the Business Committees. They may become members of the Executive Committee providing they fulfil the conditions defined in the by-laws.
Other institutions authorised to supply payment services may issue CB cards, install cash withdrawal machines and conclude contracts with merchants without being CB members because they are related in a capitalistic or legal manner to a CB member: these are CB Group Entities.
