History

Following a series of person to person contacts over a number of years a meeting was convened in Brussels on the 12th and the 13th of November 1971.

The meeting agreed that a draft Constitution would be presented to an inaugural Assembly to be held in Frankfurt in October 1972.

Ten countries were represented at the first Assembly, these were:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Switzerland and United Kingdom

The Federation had come into being with a membership of ten and a course of action was set in motion to make IFATSEA known, and to have as its primary object the recognition of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel, by national and international bodies. It was decided that the achievement of these aims would best be served by producing a journal and seeking the amendment of ICAO Annex 1.

Ten years after the setting up of IFATSEA, the membership had doubled and the federation was fully recognised as representing the interests of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel by such bodies as, ICAO ‑ ILO and EUROCAE.

A further ten years later, in 1992 the total membership had continued to increase covering 36 countries worldwide and in 2013 we have expanded to 50 affiliated countries.
