Information for AIST Members with existing post-nominals pre 1 February 2016

From 1 February 2016, AIST has simplified the member accreditation framework.

How will existing members be impacted?

  • Members who are currently recognised as an Affiliate of AIST (AIST(Aff)) or an Associate of AIST (AAIST), will merge into the single category of Associate of AIST (AAIST). 
  • Members who are currently a Fellow of AIST (FAIST) will continue to be recognised as a Fellow of AIST (FAIST) 

These changes will be applied automatically by AIST, you do not need to take any action.
