The International Association for Forensic Phonetics and Acoustics (IAFPA) was formally established in York, England, in 1991 with the name The International Association for Forensic Phonetics (IAFP). It seeks to:
- foster research and provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and information on practice, development and research in forensic phonetics and acoustics, and
- set down and enforce standards of professional conduct and procedure for those involved in forensic phonetic and acoustic casework.
The IAFPA website provides information for members and non-members about the Association's journal, conferences and committees. The Code of Practice, Constitution and Resolutions are also available. Membership information, including an online application form, and contact details are provided.
