esa-star Registration Process
The esa-star – ESA’s System for Tendering And Registration – application, including its Entity Registration facility replaces the “Industry Outlook” component of EMITS.
Registration on esa-star is mandatory for all entities not yet registered as potential tenderers, wishing to do business with ESA.
Go to esa-star: https://esastar-emr.sso.esa.int
To become a “Registered Entity” with ESA, please read the guidelines below:
- Check whether your organisation is currently registered as an “Entity” or a “Business Unit” belonging to an existing Entity;
- If not, you can register your entity by completing the ESA on-line questionnaire and submitting your entry for validation;
- Following this, you will have access to the features and services offered by esa-star and EMITS;
- Please note that esa-star allows two levels of entity registration: “Light” and “Full”. This allows new users wishing to do business with ESA to carry out their registration in two steps. A “Light” registration will grant access to all esa-star services up to and including proposal submission. The award of ESA contracts requires “Full” registration.
