The International Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry had its beginnings in 1971 with a scientific meeting, organized to provide a forum for how analytical chemists might contribute to the recent “environmental revolution”. 

Now, since 42 years, it has had a long and successful lifetime, morphing from that initial meeting into an organization that has a worldwide impact. The main event organized by the IAEAC is the International Symposium on Environmental Analytical Chemistry (ISEAC).

Since 2014 Food Analytics became integrated in ISEAC.
