Constitution of the
International Seismological Centre

Since ~1964, the International Seismological Centre (ISC) was run as a not-for-profit, non-governmental, international organization based in United Kingdom. It was originally registered in Scotland in the early 1970s as an unincorporated association - the status that allowed ISC to operate for the next 50 years throughout the UK. During that period, the ISC was governed by its Working Statutes.

On the 8th of April, 2020, the ISC was registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organization (CIO) with the Charity Commission for England and Wales: registered charity number 1188971.

The ISC is now governed by its Constitution - a legal instrument that was adopted at the point of registration with the Charity Commission.
