Sport Integrity Unit

Based on the revision of Act on the Japan Sport Council in 2013, the JSC takes responsibility in “ensuring fair and proper implementation of sporting activities”. The Sport Integrity Unit, launched in April 2014, acts in the areas of fight against doping, harassment and match manipulation in sport, and promotion of good governance in Japanese sports organizations.

Cooperation and collaboration with related organizations

The basic Act Sport regards sports as a "universal human culture", and proclaims that living a happy and prosperous life through sports is a "right of all people". In order to realize this philosophy, we established the "JAPAN SPORT NETWORK" in July 2013 to strengthen cooperation and promote collaboration with other sports-related organizations. The JSC has concluded the "Power of Sport" Joint Declaration with 886 regional public-sector organizations (as of April 1 2022) to strengthen our network with communities, and is keeping up efforts to develop the network.

SPORTS JAPAN Ambassadors have dual roles-firstly as messengers who communicate the principle of "SPORTS JAPAN" to many people,and secondly as partners who promote the building of "trust", "norms", and "networks(bond)" of Japan(Japanese people) (="social capital") through sports with the JSC.
