Among the four task forces created by IPACS to improve coordination and action against corruption in sport governance, Task Force 3 set out to develop a benchmark for sport governance, recognised by both the international sport movement and governments, and applicable at national and international levels, as well as to present options for advising, supporting and monitoring compliance with the benchmark at international and national levels.

The benchmark was approved in 2020 and includes the five dimensions listed below, with ten recommendations and their guidelines for each dimension.

The recommendations will be soon available on the webpage.

EPAS, the network for intergovernmental
co-operation on sport policies, and GRECO, the anti-corruption policy monitoring body, are working together against corruption in sport to represent the Council of Europe at IPACS.
