  • Who delivers accreditations to the Olympic Games?

    The Olympic Identity and Accreditation Card (OIAC) is a document which establishes the identity of its holder. It gives access, to the sites, venues and events placed under the responsibility of the OCOG to perform their roles. The IOC delegate to the OCOG the authority to grants the OIAC to persons eligible for accreditation.

    To ensure a centralised coordination of the accreditation process and prevents individuals making requests directly to an OCOG for accreditation, there are responsible organisations such as International Federations, National Olympic Committees (NOCs), future OCOGs, Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) designated as the interlocutors of the OCOG in charge of returning all requests and accreditations documents.
