Access and Pricing
Pricing guidelines of ANFF equipment and staff time are listed in the Access and Pricing document – further discussion with nodes will be needed to incorporate other costs of a project such as material costs. This document also includes some of the overarching terms and conditions of accessing ANFF.
It is worth discussing pricing options for large or ongoing projects as the nodes may also offer incentives or discounts.
Working within ANFF guidelines, each of the Nodes set their own pricing structures. These are collated in the ANFF Access and Pricing Policy, but further details and the latest information is available from the Node itself.
There are site-specific policies that dictate how matters such as training assessments, the introduction of new materials, and the handling of dangerous goods to ensure easy and safe access for all users.
ANFF’s various policies are what ensures easy open access to ANFF sites across the country, including the preservation of your IP. Talk to your local node about their policies for the specific details at each site.
