EPAS aims to promote the development of any sport whose benefits are wide-reaching. It develops policies and standards, monitors them and helps with capacity-building and the exchange of good practices.
Different recommendations initially prepared by EPAS have been adopted by the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers on issues of sports ethics, the autonomy of the sports movement, and the protection of young athletes from dangers associated with migration.
Older recommendations such as the European Sports Charter are regularly monitored via consultative visits in member states, the Charter is currently under revision. The Recommendation on extreme martial arts and combat activities is the most recent and was adopted on 31 March 2021.
