Since the inception of the organisation.
The rules had remained largely unchanged since the inception of
the organization except for the removal of clauses dealing with
grading of members. The 2002 changes updated the name (as
previously voted on) to the Institute of Instrumentation,
Control and Automation, Australia Inc, and corrected a number of
typographical errors that had remained in transferring the
document from the Companies Act format. A full update of
the Rules was passed by Members in May 2010 with one of the
major changes being the decision to abolish the Division /
Branch hierarchy. All Divisions were changes to Branches and
each individual Branch is now operating on its own merits rather
than part of a division.
The 'Rules' cover the operation of the Federal Council,
with the Branch level operations being governed by the By-laws.
