The IIA maintains relations with associated organizations that are organized on a regional or linguistic basis, such as:
ACIIA - Asian Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditors
AFIIA - African Federation of Institutes of Internal Auditors
ECIIA - European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing
FLAI - Fundación Latinoamericana de Auditores Internos
UFAI - Union Francophone de l' Audit Interne
The IIA has signed agreements of cooperation with each of these organizations to facilitate communication and coordination of activities at the organization level and to promote consistency and continuity. Many IIA Institutes belong to one or more of these organizations. However, the relation and its agreement in no way interfere with or supercede the direct relationship of each IIA Institute with The IIA.
The Framework for Cooperation ensures that The IIA and the associated organizations:
- Formally recognize the shared mission, common interests, and strong relations that exist.
- Implement and maintain a system of communication and cooperation.
- Share information and resources in areas that benefit both organizations (advocacy for the profession, promoting professionalism, professional development, and leadership development).
- Market each others' brand (name and logo) consistently and accurately.
