IOF Quality Requirements, Standards and Approved Systems
The IT Area at an IOF Major Event is complex and demanding, more than most people imagine. During 2017 the IOF IT Commission strengthen the support to organisers by defining IOF IT requirements and a quality assurance framework. It was released in March 2018 to help organizers understand what it takes to set up the IT systems that are needed to achieve a successful major IOF event.

IOF Timing and Punching System Report
To monitor the quality of timing and punching processes, the IT Commission wants to collect information and statistics about the systems in use in orienteering today. The aim is to detect any recurring problems, enhance guidelines and educational material and base future directions and decisions on facts. As we do not want to increase the reporting workload of the organiser, the form is quite short and to the point.
We ask you to fill in the fields that are relevant for your competition, and if you had any particular difficulties, feel free to elaborate in detail in the comment part. Please read through the form before starting to fill in, because it’s not possible to change anything after submission.
