The Council of Europe’s Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) was privileged to co-ordinate the preparation of the guidelines on integrity in sport, within the framework of the Kazan Action Plan.

With improved sport integrity as the aim of Action 3 of Kazan Action Plan, five areas have been identified to provide some guidelines to public authorities for the development of policies in these domains.

five policy areas five policy areas

The good practices mentioned in the guidelines and the standards which set out the legal framework in the five policy areas are, of course, not an exhaustive list. For this reason, the guidelines are accompanied and completed by this online directory of many other best practice examples and legal references. The online directory will be updated in line with the changing landscape of sport, and we encourage the reader to suggest the addition of any new references (or indeed deletion of obsolete ones) via this webpage.

A filter is available in the right-hand banner, so that you can show the good practices by policy area, and by type of resource.

Please note that some practices and resources are cross-sectorial and can appear more than once.
