The Australasian Institute of Marine Surveyors (A.l.M.S) was fully established in 1986 and its core objectives are :

  • Establishing, promoting and maintaining the specialised discipline of marine surveying
  • Providing and supporting a code of conduct and ethics allied to the values of integrity, responsibility and service
  • Seeking approval and recognition by governmental, professional and industrial institutions on the basis of demonstrated knowledge and skills
  • Providing a body of knowledge, arrived at from lengthy periods of theoretical training, in conjunction with practical experience

There were 56 founder members in 1986 , ten of whom are still members today. 

The AIMS is the peak industry body for surveyors in our region and the largest marine surveyor association in the Southern Hemisphere. Many of our Members have worked for more than twenty-five years in their profession and membership of the AIMS means being committed to and demonstrating our core values of talent, integrity and excellence in all that they do as surveyors and all that we do as an Association. 

While we started modestly the AIMS now represents more than 80% of the commercial marine surveyors in Australia and has members in all States and Territories and in most of our ports.  

AIMS also has members in New Zealand, the Asia and South Pacific regions as well as other overseas countries. 

The Executive Committee, made up of the President, Vice President, Public Officer / Treasurer and the Secretary is responsible for the implementation of policy and directing the CEO in the day to day operations of the Institute. 

The Executive is supported by the Chief Executive Officer, Legal Counsel and an Accountant.
