Who are we?

The Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors is the only professional membership body exclusively for internal auditors in the UK and Ireland. 

We represent the profession of internal auditing and we deliver services to internal auditors. 

Our policy work helps us to raise the profile of the profession and to represent our members to regulators, government and the media.

Our qualifications, training and resources help internal auditors to be the best they can be.  

We have over 10,000 members across the UK and Ireland and are part of the Global IIA which has 180,000 members in 190 countries. In Europe, we're represented by the European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA), which promotes internal auditing to organisations within the European Community, alongside publish research/position papers and organising an annual conference.  

All these members are committed to a common Code of Ethics and follow the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. 

We operate at a local level through our nine regions, which are run voluntarily by committee members who deliver local networking events and opportunities.

We have over 50 staff members and have been in business since 1948. In 2010, we were granted a Royal Charter.
