Founded on adoption of 'Agreement on CAB INTERNATIONAL'. Derives from formation in 1910, London (UK), of the 'Entomological Research Committee (Tropical Africa)', with entomologists posted in East Africa and West Africa to collect and study insects injurious to humans, crops and animals. Subsequently other organisms and disciplines were covered and services brought together under the auspices of the Imperial Agricultural Bureaux (IAB), which was formally constituted in 1929. IAB became H-XH0231 - Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux (CAB) in 1930. Under the constitution of CAB INTERNATIONAL, the scope changed from being exclusively Commonwealth to fully international, with membership open to any country.
