The Association was first offered the status three years ago in 2011 with Excellency Justice Mohammed Abuzeid Ahmed, Chief Ombudsman of the Sudan, being the first envoy. Chief Ombudsman Fozia Amin has been represented following the retirement of the former.

On the occasion, the Joint Operational implementation Framework for the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which regulates the relationship between the Commission and the Continental Ombudsman and Mediators body was among the issues paid due concern.

The Ethiopian Institution of the Ombudsman (EIO) is also East African Regional Coordinator and member institution of the International Ombudsman Institution (IOI).
