The Insurance Industry Committee on Motor Vehicle Administration (IICMVA) is an all-industry advisory group formed in January 1968 as the official liaison between the insurance industry and Motor Vehicle Departments in the US and Canada. The need for such a committee was identified when the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) adopted a resolution that an industry committee be formed to work with motor vehicle administrators on matters affecting mutual interests.

Subject to applicable law and regulations, the Committee's purpose is to:
- Develop and maintain a close working liaison with AAMVA
- Act as a central body through which interested parties can submit their problems with respect to the administration of compulsory insurance laws, financial responsibility laws, or other motor vehicle related matters
- Facilitate a more expeditious handling of these problems as they arise
- Coordinate the dissemination of information from the State Motor Vehicle Departments and Insurance Departments to all insurers
IICMVA meets three to four times each year throughout the AAMVA Regions to give local Motor Vehicle Administrators an opportunity to meet with the Committee. Special meetings are also called from time to time as the need arises. The following antitrust statement is read by an officer prior to any meeting or industry discussion:
As members of the Insurance Industry Committee on Motor Vehicle Administration or participants in this meeting, we need to be mindful of the constraints of the antitrust laws. There shall be no discussions of agreements of concerted actions that may restrain competition, such as price fixing, boycotts, refusals to deal or allocations of markets. This prohibition includes the exchange of information concerning individual company rates, coverages, market practices, claims settlement practices, or any other competitive aspect of an individual company's operation. Each member or participant is obligated to follow the published agenda and to speak up immediately for the purpose of preventing any discussion falling outside the bounds indicated. Please refer to the more detailed antitrust preamble included with the materials for this meeting.
The antitrust statement is an abbreviated version of the formal declaration adopted by the Committee. Members and participants are advised to review and abide by the formal antitrust declaration: IICMVA Antitrust Declaration.
