Welcome to the website of the International Association for Identification! We are the oldest and largest forensic association in the world. This professional forensic association represents a diverse, knowledgeable and experienced membership that are assembled to educate, share, critique and publish methods, techniques and research in the physical forensic science disciplines.

On this website you can find information about each discipline that the IAI represents, our certification program, and our unpcoming conferences. The IAI has training and safety publications as well as our peer reviewed Journal of Forensic Identification and our association newsletter, Identification News. The Journal and Newsletter are available in the member area, and are one of the many benefits of membership.
