Plaque Order Form

From IEEE Milestones Wiki

                                                          MILESTONE PLAQUE ORDER FORM


PLAQUES REQUIRE 10-12 WEEKS TO CAST AND SHIP. THIS TIME CANNOT BE SHORTENED. It is your responsibility to allow enough time between placing the order and submitting payment to the History Center, and the dedication ceremony for the plaques to arrive on time. If you are ordering more than 3-4 plaques, it is recommended to allow even more time.

The month and year of the dedication are cast on the plaque(s). Thus the date of the dedication must be decided prior to the ordering of the plaques.

Please email this filled-out form to:, Milestones Administrator, IEEE History Center, 445 Hoes Lane, Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA, +1 732 562 5468. Please include the docket number of your milestone in the subject line of the email. (For a printer-friendly version, click on "Printable Version" under "Tools" in the grey box to the left.)

History Center staff will send you an invoice with the payment options and instructions. Do not initiate payment until you have received the invoice and the payment instructions.

Plaques cost US$937 per plaque plus shipping. Current shipping costs per plaque are:
Within U.S.A.: $63; to Canada: $42, to Europe: $495,  India: $495, Asia and Pacific: $495. Other destinations might vary. IEEE History Center staff can supply costs to you on request. There is no discount in cost for multiple plaques.

Customs duties, VAT, and other taxes and fees are the responsibility of the sponsoring organizational unit (recipient), and might be an additional cost.

Plaques may be paid for by three methods: Check, credit card (Visa or Mastercard), wire transfer, or transfer to IEEE History Center account from IEEE organizational unit account. (Deduction from Section rebate is not a payment option.) IEEE History Center staff will provide payment details (e.g how to arrange transfer to History Center account) on the invoice that will be sent to the IEEE organizational unit. For details, see Plaque payment options Payment must be made by an IEEE organizational unit to the History Center. The History Center cannot invoice a non-IEEE entity, and cannot receive payment from a non-IEEE entity. In cases where a corporation or non-IEEE sponsor has agreed to support the cost of the plaque, the IEEE sponsoring organizational unit must pay the History Center and then obtain reimbursement from the non-IEEE sponsor. (The only exception to this requirement is when the customs regulations of the receiving country make it easier or more cost-effective for the payment to come directly from an entity in that country. Permission must be obtained in advance from History Center staff in such cases.)

GST, VAT, or other customs duties (if applicable) are the responsibility of the ordering organizational unit and must be paid separately between the OU and the appropriate customs service.
