Participation in the UGH is open and voluntary, any member of the grain market has the right to join the UGH and withdraw from it (in the order prescribed by the Contract).

The UGH members have equal rights, as well as retain their legal and economic independence. Participation in the holding does not involve contribution by its members of financial deposits, assets or other fees, including for the maintenance of the authorities of the UGH.
