New Audit and Compliance Committee holds first meeting

The new FIFA Audit and Compliance Committee held its first meeting under the chairmanship of Domenico Scala at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich today. The creation of this committee and the appointment of Scala as its chairman were approved by the FIFA Congress held in Budapest on 25 May 2012.

After the meeting, Domenico Scala said: “I am very pleased that we have started to work today in this committee, which has an important role as an independent monitoring and oversight body.

In particular, the various proposals established during the reform process to enhance governance and compliance are now being implemented through this committee, including for example increased transparency and control of the various development programmes.” ...
