The Disaster Management Institute (DMI) was set up in 1987 by the Government of Madhya Pradesh (GoMP) as an autonomous organization in the aftermath of the world’s worst ever industrial disaster in Bhopal. In homage to its victims, the establishment of DMI is a commitment to ensure that grim ‘Bhopal’ never recurs. 
DMI is now recognized as one of the premier Institute in the area of Disaster Management at National level.  Recognizing its capability, Govt. of India has planned to upgrade it as the National Institute in Industrial Safety (NIIS) in the current five year plan. Over the years, DMI has organized more than 1000 Training programmes building capacity of nearly 30,000 persons in various aspects of Disaster Management.  DMI is now recognized as Center of Excellence in “Management of Chemical Accidents”. DMI is also recognized as one of the few Third Party Inspection Agencies (TPIAs) for certification of ERDMP documents for midstream and downstream activities of Oil & Gas sector..
