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 the 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

As the list of good practices and standards for the different policy areas cannot be exhaustive, it is complemented by this online database of many other examples of good practices and legal references. This tool will be updated as the situation evolves, and we encourage the reader to suggest the addition of new references (or the deletion of obsolete ones) through this dedicated webpage.

A filter is available in the right-hand banner, allowing to sort 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.
