This page describes how to register as an individual user and as a user under an Organisational Licence.


How to register as an individual user

You will need to register as an individual user if you are the only person who will use this licence.

If you are registering a new organisation, you must be the Contact Officer and you must first register as an individual user.

Step 1: Register

Click on the Register link on the left navigation menu.

On the Registration page, provide the following details:

  • email address
  • title
  • surname
  • first name
  • phone number
  • address
  • postcode
  • secret question
  • secret answer

You will also need to provide a password. Your password must be a minimum of seven characters and must contain three of the following four items:
  • a number
  • a lower case letter
  • an upper case letter
  • a special character (!@#$%? are allowed).

Step 2: Activate account

Once you have submitted your details, you will receive an email with your user ID. Follow the link in the email to activate your account (this needs to be done within 30 days of submitting the request).

Enter your password and the user ID provided in your email and click the Login button.

Step 3: Choose a licence type

Choose the option 'I want to register as an individual' and click the Next button.

Step 4: Select Products

Select products which you would like to have access to.

Read and confirm you accept the Terms & Conditions for the product(s) you are requesting.

If you have selected a charged product, you will need to provide the name and contact details of the person responsible for payment.

An ABS officer will contact the nominated person to arrange payment.

You will receive an email confirming that your registration has been approved.


How to register a new organisation

Step 1: Register as an individual

To register a new organisation, you must be the Contact Officer and you must first register as an individual user (see above 'How to register as an individual user') and wait for email confirmation. A Delegate from your organisation is also required (see Step 3.). This should be someone at a more senior level than you.

Step 2: Activate account

Once you have submitted your details, you will receive an email with your user ID.

Follow the link in the email to activate your account (this needs to be done within 30 days of submitting the request).

Enter your password and the user ID provided in your email and click the Next button.

Step 3: Choose a licence type

Choose the option: 'I want to register as part of a new organisation' and click the Submit button.

Select the tick box 'My organisation does not appear on the list. I want to register a new organisation' and click on the Join button.

Enter your organisation's details, including details of a Delegate from your organisation, then click the Submit button.

Accept the Contact Officer roles and responsibilities, then click Finish.

To add products to your organisation select 'Add Product" or select Finish if you do not wish to purchase any ABS products at this time.

If you have purchased any ABS products an ABS officer will contact you to arrange payment.

When payment has been received, you will be sent an email confirming approval of your Organisational Licence registration.
