The Inter-Allied Mission of Control for Factories and Mines was an organization established to administer the Allied occupation of the Ruhr Area, by French and Belgian allied forces.

The Treaty of Versailles (|) required Germany to pay damages following World War I (|) and the Rhineland was already under Allied occupation secure that these obligations were fulfilled. When Germany failed to meet its commitments factories and mines in the industrialized Ruhr Area were seized as a means of sanction and to impress upon Germany the necessity of paying the damages.
