The IQA is the leading body for the extractive and associated industries sector. With over 1500 members the IQA represents all parts of the industry. Members include quarry owners and operators, quarry and site managers, engineers, production managers, geologists, surveyors, technical and laboratory staff, environmental specialists, sales staff, and health and safety officers and of course, senior leaders.

The IQA brings operators and suppliers together through its branches and events. This networking creates opportunity to share ideas and the latest technical, environmental, and commercial industry developments. In addition to the powerful networks and industry connections, the IQA is the leader in professional development and training for the extractive industry. The IQA believes education and training is a life-long opportunity which should be viewed in the broadest terms, involving initial qualifications gained from vocational and/or tertiary education programs, on the job training and ongoing professional development.

Continuing professional development is important in the extractive industry as it supports improvements in sustainability, workplace safety, environmental management, community outcomes and business performance.

The IQA continues to develop and deliver educational platforms, through a consolidated single source, which are industry specific and designed to assist in meeting duty of care and competency requirements for statutory positions. As a member-based organisation, the IQA is working to lift the standards within the industry across many areas including safety, environment, and people development.
