FIH Integrity Code
Approved by the FIH Executive Board.
The Code establishes clear integrity standards for persons involved in the activities of the FIH, to prohibit
conduct that might undermine public confidence in the integrity of Hockey and/or in the uncertainty of
outcomes of FIH Events.
The Integrity Code sets out general obligations and anti-corruption rules that apply to all Covered Persons
(FIH Executive Board Members, including candidates for election to the EB), Committee & Panel Members
and FIH Staff, as well as additional obligations that apply specifically to FIH executives and staff.
To whom is the Code applicable?
The Integrity Code applies in its entirety to FIH Executive Board Members (including candidates for
election to the EB), Committee & Panel Members and FIH Staff.
All parts of the Integrity Code, except for specific obligations applicable to FIH executives and staff (Section D of the Code) apply to athletes, officials and event organisers, by virtue of their participation in or their selection to participate in FIH Events.
The Code set outs general duties for Covered Persons, such as a duty not to engage in any form of
discrimination or harassment. There are clear rules against anti-corruption.
Making a complaint
Any allegation or suspicion of a breach of the Code (or any other matters relating to integrity) must be
reported to the FIU, whether by confidential email to or brought to the attention
of the FIH CEO.
