The University of Adelaide initiated a system of examinations in 1887 that later became the federated body known today as the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB). 

The Federal AMEB Office is based in Melbourne, Victoria, and signatories to the constitution are the Universities of Adelaide, Melbourne, Western Australia and the Ministers of Education in New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania. Each signatory is responsible for the conduct of examinations within its area/s.

The federated AMEB celebrated its centenary anniversary in 2018.
