The four FIFA Task Forces which were created at the request of the FIFA Executive Committee in October 2011 have all concluded their mandate to propose reforms, as part of the process which was launched during the FIFA Congress in Zurich on 1 June 2011.
The proposals of the Task Force FIFA Ethics Committee and the Task Force Transparency and Compliance, in particular with regards to the creation of the two-chamber Ethics Committee and the creation of the Audit & Compliance Committee, in both cases with independent chairmen, were already approved by the FIFA Congress in Budapest on 25 May 2012. Additionally, the new FIFA Code of Conduct and the appointment of a woman for the first time in the FIFA Executive Committee were also approved that day.
The Task Force Revision of Statutes presented a draft proposal for amendments of the FIFA Statutes and the remaining proposals which were not voted on at the Congress in 2012 will be presented to the FIFA Congress in 2013. In this context, the FIFA Executive Committee decided at its meeting on 27-28 September 2012 to create a working group chaired by FIFA Executive Committee member and chairman of the Task Force Revision of Statutes Theo Zwanziger, and comprising the general secretaries as well as the legal directors of the confederations and FIFA, in order to consult the 209 member associations and submit the remaining proposals regarding the revision of the FIFA Statutes to the FIFA Congress 2013.
Finally, the FIFA Task Force Football 2014 has also concluded its work following discussions on possible reforms of the game itself. Several members of this task force, including its chairman Franz Beckenbauer, will now integrate the FIFA Football Committee.
The reform process will continue as planned until the 2013 Congress.
