The International Association for Identification (IAI) is the largest forensic organization in the world.

The IAI was originally formed as the "International Association for Criminal Identification" in October 1915. Through the years it has grown into an educational and certification body with over 6,000 members worldwide.

Mission and Goals[edit]

The International Association for Identification (IAI) strives to be the primary professional association for those engaged in forensic identification, investigation, and scientific examination of physical evidence. To accomplish this mission, the IAI has six goals:
  • Educate members about the most current information and research in forensic identification.
  • Affiliate people who are actively engaged in the profession of forensic identification, investigation, and scientific examination of physical evidence in an organized body. In this way, the profession may be standardized, as well as effectively and scientifically practiced.
  • Enlarge and improve the science of forensic identification and crime detection.
  • Encourage research in scientific crime detection.
  • Employ the collective wisdom of the profession to advance the scientific techniques of forensic identification and crime detection.
