Quality & Integrity


The premier embalming organisation in Australia and South East Asia​.

The Australian Institute of Embalming has been established for over 20 years. The AIE, through its Council, negotiates with various agencies and authorities to ensure that only the finest practices are accepted and that professional status is recognised. The presence of the AIE has produced a culture in Australia where embalming is an accepted part of the funeral process.

Above all, membership of the AIE indicates a level of professionalism. Individuals in the industry must meet certain criteria before being accepted in the Institute.

The annual Conference of the AIE is held over approximately two-and-a-half days during mid-year. It is intended as an educational and informative session, and embalmers’ can gain accreditation points by attending.
