The Controller

The Controller magazine is the quarterly publication of IFATCA. Since 2014, we no longer produce a paid, printed version, but have moved on to an electronic magazine. This is available on a variety of platforms:

  • Mobile Devices (tablets): the easiest is to download our free Apps. These can be downloaded via and For a small fee, individual issues can be downloaded and read on-the-go when no internet connection is available. A subscription, which gives access to the entire catalog of issues during one year, is also available. The contribution helps us to finance the development of the applications.
  • Issues can be read online, via our website. Using, issues can be read from within your browser. While this should also work on mobile devices, it does require you to be online (and your provider may charge you for this).

    For the best experience, we recommend to select the full screen option via the toolbar on top of the pages.

  • A PDF version of the latest issue can be downloaded here. Depending on the browser you use, you might have to right click and use 'save as ...'  to download the file to your computer.

Other feedback is of course also welcome. Besides being free, an electronic issue also offers new possibilities to interact with the content. The links in articles and adverts can be clicked and open to the relevant pages. We plan to make more use of this in the future, to link to videos or to provide more background to articles.
