Ward releases FIA/IOC governance practice comparison

NEWS STORY
31/10/2013

FIA presidential hopeful David Ward has released a comparison of IOC and FIA governance practices which he says contradicts Jean Todt's claim that the FIA's recent membership of the IOC means that it can "now boast the highest standards of governance".

Ward's comparative analysis shows that the FIA's election processes, its ethics committee, and its financial reporting fail to match good governance principles and practices of the IOC.

In a letter to the FIA Membership, which can be found here (pdf), Ward also calls on the FIA to appoint an independent panel of three recognised sports governance experts to compare the Federation's current governance practices with the IOC and similar bodies such as the Federation Internationale de Motocylisme (FIM) and make recommendations for further reform.

Ward also explains that a comparative report would provide a neutral and objective study for the clubs to discuss. "Hopefully," he says, "this will bring about much needed reforms so that the FIA can finally claim truthfully that it meets world class standards of governance".

"FIA and its opinion of its standard of governance? Well, it most certainly was not the conclusion expressed in a recent Motorsport article; it raised questions about its inability to govern as an independent power and the effects that flow from it. The FIA is an excessively secretive organisation and seemingly an unapproachable one. It certainly has done plenty of good to improve automotive safety standards, but in matters commercial its performance is highly questionable."
