The IICA is a not-for-profit Institute and aims to:

  • Provide a forum for Members to enhance their knowledge
  • Further the science and practice of measurement, instrumentation and control
  • Improve the status of its Membership
  • Foster high standards for design and manufacture of instrumentation and control techniques
  • Encourage education in the theory and practice of instrumentation and control, and allied technology
  • Promote the standardisation of measuring instruments and determination of standard technology
  • Support improvements in legislations affecting the practice of instrumentation and control.


  • The Institute of Instrumentation, Control and Automation Australia Inc is incorporated under Victorian State Law and Regulations, under the Associations Incorporation Act 2009.
  • This requires two primary documents to be approved by the members and by the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs – the ‘Statement of Purposes’ and the ‘Rules’.
  • The Statement of Purposes contains the reasons for the association’s existence and philosophy. This has remained unchanged
    Since the inception of the organisation. The rules had remained largely unchanged since the inception of the organization except for the removal of clauses dealing with grading of members. The 2002 changes updated the name (as previously voted on) to the Institute of Instrumentation, Control and Automation, Australia Inc, and corrected a number of typographical errors that had remained in transferring the document from the Companies Act format.  A full update of the Rules was passed by
  • Members in May 2010 with one of the major changes being the decision to abolish the Division / Branch hierarchy. All Divisions were changes to Branches and each individual Branch is now operating on its own merits rather than part of a division.
  • The ‘Rules’ cover the operation of the Federal Council, with the Branch level operations being governed by the By-laws.
