IAIN is a non-governmental, non-profit making organisation with the objective of uniting national and multinational institutes and organisations which aim to foster human activities at sea, in the air, in space and on land, and who may benefit from the development of the science and practice of navigation and related information techniques.
The aim of IAIN is achieved by, among other things:
  a.) fostering cooperation and assistance between members;
b.) establishing technical committees or working groups to study specific problems, and producing appropriate recommendations and standards;
c.) organising Congresses and Seminars relevant to its work;
d.) collecting and evaluating information about the activities of its Members, as well as encouraging, supporting and making known recent developments in a periodical;
e.) providing assistance to organisations requesting help either technical or organisational, or in training;
f.) maintaining liaison with relevant intergovernmental and other organisations and offering specialised advice where appropriate.

IAIN's role and the value gained in the ICG

Since 2018 the IAIN has an observer status at the ICG. An IAIN representative attends the ICG meetings, contributes to different general navigational aspects and addresses recent developments in its organization and upcoming IAIN events.
The IAIN spreads the information from the ICG meetings through their members and on its website.
