Biometrics Institute

The Biometrics Institute is the independent and international membership organisation for biometrics. It was founded in July 2001 in Australia responding to an industry need for an impartial forum for sharing knowledge and information about biometrics. It expanded its outreach to New Zealand in 2004, to Singapore in 2011 and opened a subsidiary in London, UK, in July 2011 to create a global biometrics network.
