The Commonwealth Hansard Editors Association was founded at Westminster in 1984. The idea of the association was suggested by the then editor of the Westminster Commons Hansard, Ken Morgan. Associations had already been formed in Canada and Australia in the early 1970s. CHEA now has more than 50 members, from across the entire Commonwealth, and a constitution.
