The FIVB Ethics Panel held a meeting this week in Switzerland to discuss the improvement of the institution’s ethical framework. The major topic of discussion in the meeting was the review of Institution’s Code of Ethics. Changes will be proposed to the FIVB Board of Administration in May 2018 before being presented at the FIVB World Congress later in the year.
Here is Ary Graça’s, FIVB’s President, statement on the meeting:
“My top priority today is good governance. We would like to ensure that all we do at the FIVB is transparent and professional. It is very important for us to have the FIVB Ethics Panel very active, but at the same time fully independent. We would like you to also review our Code of Ethics and would like to change your role from making recommendations to the FIVB President and FIVB Board of Administration to, instead, taking decisions directly if there is a case. This is, for sure, crucial to obtaining complete credibility and democracy.”
