Royal Charter and By-laws

Founded in 1893 by a group of individual miners, AusIMM was officially incorporated by Royal Charter received from the Duke of Edinburgh and granted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1955.

A Royal Charter recognises global prominence and is a privilege few organisations can claim offering credibility to all members. The AusIMM Charter and By-laws establish AusIMM as a not-for-profit professional institute.

The Royal Charter focuses on developing and promoting best practice in the mining industry with a set of By-laws. These By-laws are key elements of our structure including membership grades, branches and societies and the AusIMM Board.

Regulations are also in place set out for specific processes and requirements for membership, professional conduct and other AusIMM operations. Regulations may be altered by the Board with 30 days’ notice to members.

A supplementary Royal Charter and new By-Laws were granted in 2017 and came into effect on 1 January 2018.
