Michael Beloff QC has been appointed as the inaugural Chair of the Disciplinary Tribunal for the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
The newly formed and independent Disciplinary Tribunal takes on the functions of the IAAF Ethics Board. Under the Integrity Code of Conduct, the Tribunal will hear and decide all breaches and has the power to impose sanctions. The Tribunal will consist of a panel of IAAF Congress approved lawyers who will be appointed to cases. All decisions made by the Disciplinary Tribunal will be able to be appealed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Michael will sit as Chair until the conclusion of the 2019 IAAF Congress.
