The UK Association of Fire Investigators (formally known as the IAAI-UK) was formed on the 31 January 2003 at an inaugural meeting at City Hall, London. Currently we have 950 members, with representation from the fire service, insurance industry, law enforcement, forensic scientists, private fire investigators, fire investigation training providers, and forensic science academic establishments.
