ASOIF OFFERS RULES TO HELP FEDERATIONS PROTECT INTEGRITY

20.03.2012

The Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF), one of SportAccord Convention's founding stakeholder organisations, has launched a set of Model Rules on Betting and Anti-Corruption to be applied by the 28 summer Olympic International Federations in the prevention of corrupt practices in sport. The Model Rules, developed with legal practice DLA Piper under the guidance of the ASOIF Legal Consultative Group, are for incorporation by IFs into their existing regulatory framework, subject to the requirements of their governing constitution, and will be adopted as soon as possible.

This initiative is a major contribution to the fight against corruption in sport in general and in particular will ensure that all International Federations involved in the London 2012 Games have the necessary support to have robust procedures in place to prevent corrupt practices and to prosecute any cases that arise, not only during the Games, but all major sports competitions going forward. The Model Rules on Betting and Anti-Corruption have been made available to the seven winter Olympic Games International Federations also and to all other International Federations through their respective umbrella bodies.
