The task of FINCIS (Finnish Center for Integrity in Sports) is to reinforce an ethically sustainable sports culture in co-operation with other parties. The purpose of FINCIS is to promote ethical sports in co-operation with sports organisations and other organisations that promote sports in the context of national and international conventions and, for its own part, be responsible for doping control and prevention of manipulation of sporting competitions and ensuring spectator safety in Finland. In addition, FINCIS supports ethics in sports in co-operation with other parties and actively initiates and participates in discussions.
FINCIS is a non-profit organisation that receives its primary funding from the Ministry of Education and Culture’s lottery funds. The members of FINCIS are the Finnish Olympic Committee, the Finnish Paralympic Committee, the Finnish Society of Sports Medicine, and the State of Finland, represented by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
The ITA has signed a cooperation agreement with FINCIS in May 2021 in order to increase the efficiency of the anti-doping efforts of both organisations.
