Ethics and Integrity in Sport: Attend an International Workshop


Register by April 19 for the June 10-14 event

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages relevant stakeholders to attend a workshop on June 10-14, 2024, to develop an International Workshop Agreement (IWA 46) on Ethics and Integrity in Sport – Guidelines. Register by April 19.

AFNOR (the ISO member for France) will host the workshop, to be held in Saint-Denis, France, to launch the development of the IWA. Virtual participation can be requested on the registration form.

The purpose of the IWA is to develop guidelines in the field of sports ethics and integrity with the following objectives:

  • To define a comprehensive framework for the sports movement and harmonized best practices at the international level
  • To engage sports organizations’ willingness to implement ethics and integrity policies in sport
  • To encourage cooperation at the international level, particularly at the public authority level

Furthermore, the document is intended for all types of sports organizations such as, but not limited to: federations, professional leagues, decentralized entities, sports associations, professional and amateur sports clubs, and organizers of competitions (private or otherwise), regardless of their size.

According to AFNOR, the proposal for an IWA to the international standardization community represents “a priority of the Ministry and Madam Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, in the context of the major international event hosted by France, i.e., Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as publicized on the website listing the commitments undertaken and especially the desire to make a positive contribution to the legacy of the games.”

While the workshop is planned as a face-to-face meeting, stakeholders may request virtual participation and access more information to register in person via the invitation to the workshop.

What is an IWA?

An IWA is a type of document that is developed with direct participation of stakeholders outside of the traditional ISO country representation to enable players to negotiate an open workshop environment. After the IWA workshop, text will be edited and published. A proposal to hold an ISO workshop for the purpose of developing one or more IWA on a particular subject may come from any source, including ISO member bodies, liaison organizations, corporate bodies, etc.
