IOF Quality Requirements, Standards and Approved Systems

The IT Area at an IOF Major Event is complex and demanding, more than most people imagine. During 2017 the IOF IT Commission strengthen the support to organisers by defining IOF IT requirements and a quality assurance framework. It was released in March 2018 to help organizers understand what it takes to set up the IT systems that are needed to achieve a successful major IOF event.
