IOF Ethics Commission

At the IOF General Assembly in Strömstad, it was decided to establish an IOF Code of Ethics, accompanied by an independent Ethics Panel. The IOF Ethics Panel of up to five persons will be elected in two years’ time, at the General Assembly in 2018. Until that time, the Council have appointed an Ethics Commission with the same remit as the Ethics Panel.
