Responsible Business Practice & Preventing Corruption in Sporting Events

World Obstacle promotes policies designed to improve the economic and social well-being of people in sporting events around the world. We follow best practices as specified by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that provides a forum in which governments and organisations work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems.

The OECD guidelines for Preventing Corruption and Promoting Responsible Business Conduct when Organising Sporting Events are followed for all World Obstacle events and are recommended for events of all national member federations. The World Obstacle Ethics Committee works with event producers to oversee best practices.

The Athlete Advisory Council (AAC) is a standing committee of World OCR, made up of elite athletes, that provides opinion and advice on FISO policies that effect obstacle sports worldwide. The AAC may appoint athletes to FISO nominating committees, panels empowered to resolve grievances, and any committee that prepares, approves or implements programs regarding the selection of international championships, Olympic, and Continental Games team members.
