The FIM North America (FIM NA), which includes two national federations — the American Motorcyclist Association and Canadian Motorcycle Association — is one of six Continental Unions (CONUs) recognized as a geographical subdivision of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM). 

The FIM North America, which is held accountable to the FIM, establishes a yearly calendar of Continental Championship events, declaring champions in selected disciplines and classes.

The FIM NA’s member federations issue CONU licenses to riders participating in FIM NA events. Additionally, the FIM NA issues licenses to riders planning to participate in Continental Championship events organized by other CONUs.
