{{#invoke:redirect hatnote|redirect}} {{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA, English: 'International Automobile Federation') is an association established as the Association Internationale des Automobile Clubs Reconnus (AIACR, English: 'International Association of Recognized Automobile Clubs') on 20 June 1904 to represent the interests of motoring organisations and motor car users. To the general public, the FIA is mostly known as the governing body for many auto racing events.

Headquartered at 8 Place de la Concorde, Paris, the FIA consists of 213 national member organisations in 125 countries worldwide.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> Its current president is Jean Todt.

The FIA is generally known by its French name or initials, even in non-French-speaking countries, but is occasionally rendered as 'International Automobile Federation'.

Its most prominent role is in the licensing and arbitration of Formula One and World Rally Championship motor racing. The FIA along with the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) also certify land speed record attempts. The International Olympic Committee provisionally recognized the federation in 2011, and granted full recognition in 2013.<ref>FIA gains official recognition from International Olympic Committee – Autoblog, 16 January 2012</ref><ref>IOC upgrades FIA to full recognition status – Business Standard, 17 September 2013</ref>
