The IAAF hosted a meeting of the Bureau of the Section on Sport Archives of the International Council on Archives from 13 to 15 December 2016.

The International Council on Archives (ICA) is dedicated to the effective management of records and the preservation, care and use of the world's archival heritage through its representation of records and archive professionals across the globe.

The ICA believes that effective records and archives management is an essential precondition for good governance, the rule of law, administrative transparency, the preservation of mankind's collective memory, and access to information by citizens.

The Section on Sport Archives (SPO) aims to raise awareness of the importance and relevance of sport archives. SPO works to achieve this objective by spreading information and technical knowledge and engaging both international and national bodies.
