The aim is to enhance co-operation in the consulting, training, and development fields, to prepare and implement joint training programmes, to exchange practical experiences to raise the level of performance and to enhance integrity and transparency.
The MoU was signed by HE Hamad bin Nasser al-Misnad, president of the ACTA, and Mohamed bin Hamad al-Hanzab, chairman of the ICSS.
Al-Misnad said that the signing of the MoU comes in ACTA’s keenness to co-ordinate between national authorities in the fields of integrity, transparency, and anti-corruption, and to benefit from national expertise and experience in strengthening the leadership of Qatar regionally and internationally in the aforementioned fields.
Al-Hanzab, indicated that the ICSS has been able, over the course of a decade, to participate effectively at the international level in formulating policies related to standards of safety and sports security, protection of integrity and combating corruption in global sport.

Al-Hanzab also praised the steps taken by ACTA in protecting Qatari sports and its institutions, in such way that ensures sustainability, and reflects the fact that sport is an important component of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
