Institute for Internal Controls (IIC)

The Institute for Internal Controls is dedicated to promoting an effective internal controls environment in all organizations by providing high quality research and education in all areas of internal controls.

It was established in 2003 by a group of auditing professionals and educators who were concerned with the failure of the auditing and oversight professions in uncovering and preventing the high profile financial frauds that have occurred over the recent years. It is based in Philadelphia, USA.

IIC has endorsed the Internal Audit Program and it has agreed to allow its participants to apply for the internal controls professional designations awarded by the IIC, including the Certified Internal Controls Auditor (CICA) and Certified Controls Specialist (CCS), subject to approval by The IIC’s Nomination Committee, based on the candidates education and experience.
