We provide a concise introduction to the symmetry approach to integrability. Some results on integrable evolution and systems of evolution equations are reviewed. Quasi-local recursion and Hamiltonian operators are discussed. We further describe non-abelian integrable equations, especially matrix (ODE and PDE) systems. Some non-evolutionary integrable equations are studied using a formulation of formal recursion operators that allows to study non-diagonalisable systems of evolution equations.
